Synopsis
There are places so vast, while at the same time, so cramped and so densely populated, and so emotionally charged, that one might forget the individual living there. This film is a portrait of one of those places. In the course of a few months in 2017, the Kutupalong refugee camp in Bangladesh became the most populated in the world. Out of sight, nearly 700,000 people from the Rohingya Muslim minority fled their country, Myanmar (formerly Burma), to escape genocide and seek asylum in this refugee camp. Wandering, a Rohingya Story plunges us into the merciless reality of life in this gigantic camp. A documentary that is both deeply captivating and poetic, where drama meets light, where poetry and words of Rohingya refugee Kala Miya (Kalam) guide and enlighten us on the intricacies of this place that appears to have been frozen in time. Today, prisoners of this major humanitarian crisis, Kalam, Mohammad, Montas and other exiles want their voices to be heard. Between the waiting and the fear of disappearance, the food distribution, and soccer games, they bear witness to their daily lives and to the ghosts of the past. Wandering, a Rohingya Story is a film that is both powerful and needed, which allows us to observe the incredible resilience of these exiled populations and of these children who, despite the chaos, retain their capacity to be amazed....more
