Just to Let You Know I’ve Alive gives a voice to the women of the Saharawi people, who have been subjected to some of the most severe and under-reported human rights abuses in the last thirty years. Degja Lachgare was taken from her home in 1980 and shuttled between prisons for eleven years, most of which she spent blindfolded. Soukaina Jid Ahloud spent nearly a decade of her life naked in a cell, where she watched her daughter die of starvation. Spending time with them in their houses and tents in the desert, director Emanuela Zuccalà was astonished by, “a rare peculiarity of these women: being able to speak about the terrible nightmares they have lived always preserving serenity in their eyes and a sincere hope in a better future.”
