"Has God Forsaken Africa?" [Doc Watchers Series]
Dir. Musa Dieng Kala, 2008, 52 min.

Brussels, Belgium - August 1999. Two teenagers are found dead in the undercarriage of a plane from Conakry, Guinea. In the pocket of one of the young men was a letter in which he had written, "There's too much suffering in Africa". Each year, thousands of young Africans risk their lives in search of a brighter future. Many drown or die of cold, hunger and fatigue. Shocked by this growing phenomenon, director Musa Dieng Kala returns to Dakar, Senegal, where he grew up, and asks the painful question: Has God Forsaken Africa? The film follows five young adults who seek to immigrate to the West at any cost. This moving film makes the case for a global ecology in which no nation or people is abandoned.
