THIS JUNGO LIFE

A film by David Fedele and the Jungo of Rabat

(76mins / 2024)

ABOUT

"THIS JUNGO LIFE" is a collaboration between filmmaker David Fedele, and a group of young refugees and asylum seekers from Sudan and South Sudan, who are living and sleeping rough on the streets of Morocco.

They call themselves "Jungo" - A name traditionally given to seasonal agricultural workers from Sudan, which is now also adopted by refugees, asylum seekers and migrants on the road.

Most have arrived in Morocco since 2020, forced to flee violence and instability in Libya, and unable to return home due to ongoing war and conflict.

They are drawn to the capital city of Rabat, seeking to claim asylum with the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) and be granted refugee status.

Most also dream of entering Europe, crossing the heavily militarised fences into the Spanish cities of Sebta (Ceuta) or Melilla, European enclaves on the African continent.

THIS JUNGO LIFE seeks to tell their story from the inside .... unfiltered, with authenticity and without sensationalism.

A story of resilience in the face of suffering.

___________
