Samos. The Faces of our Border

Director:  Shams Abou El Enein

At the border of the Schengen Area, international laws and conventions forced thousands of people to live in inhuman camps. One of them is the « hotspot » of Samos, on the island that has the same name. Focusing on the people in and around this migrant camp, built for 600 persons and where more that 6000 live now, it also gives an insight on the European politics that have led to this catastrophic situation. This is not inspired by a true story. These are true stories. Their stories, making our History. These 28 interviews have been conducted in June 2019.
