When Resources Are Limited and the Need Is Great, What Is the Real Value of Art?

About The Film

In a boarding school in Uganda, South Sudanese refugee children recently deported from Israel struggle to adjust to a new way of life away from their families, friends, and the Israeli culture they grew up with.

An Israeli sculptor exploring the role of art outside the studio walls travels to Africa to meet them and make art together. He forges unexpected connections while wrestling with the question – When the means are limited, and the need is great, what is the real value of art?

In a foreign country away from their families, deported refugee children grapple with a painful past and unpredictable future. An artist envisions a project that might offer them a path to healing and empowerment.
