A Peaceful Place

Cameroon, Norway 2021 | 70 minutes | French, Fulah, Mbum | Hebrew, English subtitles

Newborn Elias and his family are just a few of the over one million people from the Central African Republic who fled their homes to Northern Cameroon since the beginning of a new civil war in 2013. The film follows Elias and his family over four years as they try to build a new home. As news from the homeland continues to invade the life, challenging the relative peace around, the future for Elias and his relatives remains unclear. A Peaceful Place divulges how Intra-African immigration is similar to immigration elsewhere, with its pains and opportunities.
