I don't suppose the filmmakers ever thought this movie would make a tour of the world (or see the cinema light in Berlin, for the International Festvial there), but maybe they should have expected that. Whatever the case, a bit more background information would have come a long way. The viewer will figure things out at some point, but without any hints to begin with, this is hard to swallow.
The intentions are good and maybe an explanation would have felt redundant to people familiar with the situation depicted (you get a bit of a documentary feeling while watching this). So you could also take this as a strong point for the movie. Speaking generally though, the movie lacks focus and pace, which is a shame, because it does have something to tell
