Long synopsis

SONS OF THE CLOUDS: THE LAST COLONY is Alvaro Longoria’sfirst documentary as a director. Produced and conducted by Javier Bardem, the film examines the current political turmoil in Northern Africa and the responsibility of Western powers (especially the US and France) due to their applying of realpolitik (politics or diplomacy driven by economic or geostrategic motives rather than by ethics or law) in their foreign policies. These policies have generated tremendous instabilities that have finally erupted into appalling violence and chaos. The film focuses on Western Sahara, the last African colony according to the UN.

The film is a personal trip in which Bardem leads the audience through the tortuous paths of world diplomacy and the terrible reality of an abandonedpeople in a quest to understand how this could happen and how another war in Africa might be prevented.
