Migrants shipwrecked in the Mediterranean struggle to survive. Among them is the co-director of this film, who captured chaotic fragments. A chilling and essential work.

Meeting the many challenges of 2020, the RIDM has designed its sections as explorations of issues and responses to current realities.
This film is part of the section SURVIVING VIOLENCE: 12 activist films that testify powerfully to some of today’s most distressing violence: exploitation of Indigenous peoples, the tragedies faced by migrants, countries at war, state repression and violence against women.
