Production, Social, Creative
Telling the stories of five young men who survived the horrors of Libya and chose to take a treacherous journey across the Mediterranean Sea to Europe the film raised awareness around the under-reported horrors being experienced.
These men told their stories for the first time, giving a first hand account of the criminal networks thriving in Libya amongst economic collapse, political instability and on-going conflict between violent militias. The film features the voices of young men from Syria, Eritrea, Sudan, Niger and Burkina Faso. They all described stories of indiscriminate violence.
