Waiting

Top of page

The Dinkas of South Sudan are an extremely patient people. With empty stomachs, they await the next harvest. For the last forty years, an intermittent state of civil war has divided the country in two. Too often, famine has struck. The population of Alek has requested aid. Sacks of grain are dropped from planes, but to prevent rioting, distribution is delayed until the arrival of reinforcements. During this week of waiting, we witness the face of hunger.

1996, 32 min 53 s
