Un combat, des images : Hijos de las nubes, la question du Sahara occidental en 2012 et l’attention des Espagnols

Abstract : Western Sahara is a territory that has not been able to exercise its right to self-determination confirmed by the UN in 1965. In 1976 Spain withdrew and Morocco took its place. This situation is at the origin of a political mobilization in Spain, specially notorious in the world of cinema and with performer Javier Bardem at its center. He was the producer of a militant documentary film intended to show the territory’s situation in 2012 and what has been done to enforce the UN resolutions. The film took advantage of all available communication systems at the time (Cinema, television, Internet, social networks...) to spread its political message and to influence in the decisions concerning Western Sahara. Just like a petition, the diffusion of the film and its message was an action intended to force the political actors out from realpolitik. Javier Bardem’s public notoriety and the snow-ball effect of the medias were instrumental in the film’s message amplification.
