Gambella, West of Ethiopia, on the border with Southern Sudan. Extreme borderland, entangled with multiculturalism and wars. There’s a smell of genocide in Gambella.

This is the story of a margin on the margins. Ethiopian colony in Sudan, Sudanese enclave in Ethiopian territory. Ethnic groups -Nuer, Anuak- , Highlanders (forced) migrants and Sudanese refugees of civil wars. The failure of multiculturalism. Failed dreams of modernization and industrialization. Violence.

This is a history of violence, stupidity of identity, wars and dirty State business. This is a story of a remote globalization in a forgotten place.

In the Heart of Darkness?
