In collaboration with IberoDocs, the Ibero-American Documtary Film Festival in Scotland, the BE United 4 Nations United event will be bringing you the film screening of Bolingo, The Forest of Love. A film by Alejandro G. Salgado and produced by La Maleta, Bolingo tells the story of the journey made by several women from the heart of Africa to North Morocco looking for the ‘European dream’, sacrificing almost everything as a result.
Bolingo is a story of lights and shadows, and of struggle and hope, but unfortunately, it is also a story imbued with suffering and darkness. However, Bolingo means love in Lingala, the language of a group of Congolese migrants that decided to give a little humanity to the migrants’ drama in the north of Africa, and love is the engine of this story.
