A personal journey for Academy Award-winning actor-turned-producer Javier Bardem, HIJOS DE LAS NUBES: LA ULTIMA COLONIA sheds light on the bleak reality of the Western Sahara, a former Spanish colony that is now occupied, in part, by Morocco — a situation that has resulted in nearly 200,000 refugees living their lives in camps in the desert. This compelling documentary, winner of the Goya for best documentary feature, highlights the political and human rights issues facing the people of this region, as well as the responsibility Western powers hold in the effort to restore peace to the region.
