This is the story of a family that has become refugees in their own country.
But sadly it is also the story of our own film team in Bamenda, Cameroon.
Since 2017, fighting between separatists and the army in the western regions of Cameroon has forced half a million people to flee the violence. Worldwide, about 40 million people are regarded as internally displaced persons. As long as they do not cross borders, however, they and their suffering remain invisible to the public.
“Determined to Survive” is a film by
VIBAN VALÉRIE MBIYDZENYUY
SAMA MILDRED NGENSEN
and with performances by members of Draufsicht Bamenda.
