Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars2005

Sorry. This film is not currently available.

This feature-length documentary tells the uplifting story of a group of six Sierra Leonean musicians who came together to form a band while living as refugees in the Republic of Guinea. A brutal civil war from 1991 to 2002 has forced them from their homes in Sierra Leone. Despite the unimaginable horrors of civil war, they were saved through their music. Through music they find a place of refuge, a sense of purpose and a source of power. The film follows the band over the course of three years as they make the difficult decision to return to their war-torn country and realize their dream of recording an album of their original music.
