Crossing Africa: Faith On the Road

1 July 2022

Stories of migrants in transit countries, although overlooked in mainstream media, can be extraordinarily rich and complicated especially for minorities. ‘Crossing Africa: Faith on the Road’ explores how religion, migration and other social identities can shape the everyday lives of some of sub-Saharan Africans in Tunisia.

The documentary tells the story of an Ivoirian woman who is a member of a tiny makeshift church set up by a group of migrants in Tunis. She tells us about her unexpected journey to Tunisia, her daily life, her struggles as well as her future aspirations. Through her story, the film shows how a group of Sub-Saharan Evangelical Christians in Tunis use the space of the Church not only to share spiritual values but also to show solidarity and support across the community.
