Following on from the hugely successful “Mojito and a Film” series, the Garden Cinema is proud to present the screening of Life is Waiting, one of only a handful of films that documents the reality of life in Western Sahara. Screened in conjunction with Sandblast arts, the film will be preceded by an information session that will not only place the work within the context of the situation today but will provide crucial information on how we can all play a small part in improving it.

Life is waiting is a documentary filmed by the activist and director Iara Lee, which has not only become a central film in the dialogue of native Saharawis but has also become an example of resistance in the face of adversity for numerous movements around the world. A modern classic that explores the struggles of the Saharawi’s as they push towards a referendum on their future that has been denied for more than four decades,
