    Sudan

    I wanted to go to my roots. Central Sudan, the city Madani is where my mother and father are from. And although I was born in Dubai, I spent five years there. The villages all the time we’d go there for weddings and such. I thought if I would make this film I wanted to go to places I know and I love.
