The "White Hotel" is the tourist residence where Griffin and Solvang begin their journey in Eritrea. UNAFF, ‘White Hotel’

When two women with a video camera follow an American HIV research team to Eritrea, Africa, they are seduced by a land of joy and repression, of sensuality and sexual mutilation. White Hotel is the tourist residence where Griffin and Solvang begin their journey but their journalistic objectivity is shattered by the circumstances they encounter turning their documentary into an intimate investigation of their own capacities to love, suffer and forgive.

White Hotel was picked up for distribution by Jane Balfour Films in 2003. It was released on VHS in 2004[1]
