Flight Of The Refugees

Syrian-American film director, Elias Matar, left Los Angeles to travel to the Serbian-Croatia border to understand their situation and show solidarity with refugees travelling from Greece to Germany, often on foot. Matar wants to bring the tragedy close to us and this raw footage of six days of a harrowing journey with the hope of asylum in Europe at the end certainly succeeds in bringing the viewer into empathic connection with a few of the individuals within this historic migration.
