Bolingo, The Forest of Love
Documentary, Spain (2016) | Director: Alejandro G. Salgado | 55 mins | English with Subtitles

Bolingo, the Forest of Love tells the journey made by several women from the heart of Africa to North Morocco looking for the ‘European dream’.This journey will get them into a trip to motherhood at Bolingo or some other awaiting camp settled next to the Moroccan-Spanish border.

Bolingo means love in Lingala; a language used by a group of Congolese migrants giving humanity to the migrants’ drama in North Africa. They created a camp where migrant women could live with their children until circumstances allowed them to cross the border to Europe.

Bolingo, the Forest of Love shows mothers fighting for survival and raising their children in hostile circumstances.

This screening is sponsored by the Equality and Diversity Unit (glasgow.ac.uk/myglasgow/humanresources/equalitydiversity)
