One puppeteer’s daring quest to pull a dictator’s strings.

A long-standing civil war and a dearth of media outlets has left the people of Sudan without access to relevant news. Ganja, a young pacifist, finds a novel way to disseminate information. He travels the countryside with a puppet of President Omar al-Bashir, filming episodes of his wildly popular and satirical web series, Bisha TV.
