concept and directed by Anastasija Bräuniger
People stuck in the mud for years, overcrowded tent camps, illegal push-backs at sea. The catastrophic situation for refugees off and on the Greek island of Lesbos reveals the impending failure of the European Convention on Human Rights.
Five characters - based on five real experts and selected in a months-long research process - tell their stories and perspectives: A Greek farmer whose 300-year-old olive trees are repeatedly cut down by refugees for firewood, a German human rights lawyer from Bavaria who stands up against post-colonial injustice in Moria, a former Greek NGO worker, the Austrian political scientist and architect of the EU-Turkey deal Gerald Knaus and the Swedish EU Commissioner for Home Affairs, Ylva Johansson, who is working on her challenging mission.
What do places like Moria say about us as Europeans, what about the European project? And who bears political responsibility for the humanitarian situation at the EU's external borders?
