The Idomeni refugee camp housed people from the Middle East who were trying to cross the border into Europe. When the Greek police closed the camp, the refugees resisted and blocked a railway line used to deliver goods. This minimalist documentary not only observes these events but also presents carefully modelled static images that open the space within and without the frame of view and, in the closing black-and-white sequence, offers a poetic commentary. The result is a bleak portrait of a place where endless lines of refugees try to preserve the final remnants of their individual freedoms.

“This film is a call to welcome the refugees that cross the European borders, as well as the ghosts that return with them.”

Best world documentary 2016 at Jihlava IDFF.
