"Geneva-Khartoum" is a reflection on what makes our lives rich or poor. Based on a comparison between these two cities that have coexisted in the directorâ€™s life, "Geneva-Khartoum" reminds us of the differences in living standards and values between North and South. Punctuated by Sister Emmanuelleâ€™s lively interviews, the film gradually reveals another flaw in what is common opinion with this paradox: true wealth may not lie where it seems.... Alternating testimonies of Sudanese people and thoughts about international capitalism, "Geneva-Khartoum" plunges us into the heart of the injustices that are tearing Sudan itself. This documentary, also with moments of joy and refreshing humour, highlights the need to develop openness and to support those who, beyond their personal interest, are fighting to give meaning to our world.
