THE LAND BETWEEN

THE LAND BETWEEN is not only an excellent film, but also a political catalyst that unsettles the viewer
and turns his empathy into anger. The sort of anger that brings the anticipation of change.
Festival of Migrant Film 2014 – Ljubljana, Slovenia

SYNOPSIS

THE LAND BETWEEN ci offre la possibilità di penetrare nella disperante e nascosta intimità dei migranti dell’Africa Subsahariana che vivono nelle montagne a Nord del Marocco. La maggior parte di loro sogna di entrare in Europa saltando una barriera altamente militarizzata per arrivare a Melilla, enclave Spagnola nel continente Africano.

Con un accesso unico e senza precedenti, questo film documenta la vita quotidiana di questi migranti intrappolati in un limbo, nonché l’estrema violenza e i costanti abusi che si trovano a subire da parte delle autorità sia Marocchine che Spagnole. Il film esplora anche numerose domande universali, tra cui come e perché le persone sono preparate a rischiare tutto, compresa la loro vita, a lasciare il loro paese, la loro famiglia e i loro amici, in cerca di una vita nuova e migliore
