WALLAH JE TE JURE
“Wallah – Je te jure” tells the stories of men and women travelling along West African migration routes to
Italy. Senegal’s rural villages, Niger’s bus stations and “ghettos” full of traffickers, Italian squares and houses
are the backdrops of these courageous trips, which often end in tragedy.
No matter the cost, the goal to reach Europe will be achieved, “Wallah.”
But there are those who, tired from the journey, turn back home.
