Event Description
Since 1975, Saharawi people have lived half in Western Sahara and half in refugee camps in Algeria divided by a 2,700 km wall built by Morocco during the war. “Just To Let You Know That I’m Alive” gives voice to Saharawi women who were victims of violence, both in Western Sahara and in the Saharawi refugee camps in Algeria.
Through their testimonies, diaries and old photographs, the history of the Saharawi people is reconstructed from a uniquely female perspective.
