Description


When Nkoula Thesia Gervelie was born in 1995 in the Republic of Congo, her mother and father had a nice house in a suburb of Brazzaville. When fighting broke out two years later, her father's political connections put the family in grave danger and they were forced to flee. Gervelie's Journey follows the family from Congo to the Ivory Coast, and then to Ghana, across Europe, and finally to England. Told in Gervelie's own voice and using her own photographs, it depicts with grace and sensitivity their long journey, their life in a new country, and their new hopes for the future.
