With God's Grace

AT 2016, 90 min, Gabriele Hochleitner, Timothy McLeish

Sadi is from a very different world. At 17 she fled female genital mutilation in Gambia. Six months later, having gone 'the Backway', surviving the Sahara, civil war in Libya and the boat journey, she ends up in Sicily together with many other refugees, most of them men. We visit Sadi often with the camera. She allowed us into her tiny room where she stayed whilst waiting for her documents. Sometimes she talks, sometimes she's silent. The film tries to understand her west african attitudes, sometimes open, sometimes closed - trying to find a common language for her inconceivable story.
