In Detail

In the treacherous and swampy forests that make up the so-called "green border" between Belarus and Poland, refugees from the Middle East and Africa trying to reach the European Union are trapped in a geopolitical crisis cynically engineered by Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko.

In an attempt to provoke Europe, refugees are lured to the border by propaganda promising easy passage to the EU. Finding themselves pawns in this hidden war, the lives of activist Julia, border guard Jan and a Syrian family intertwine. Thirty years after her Oscar-nominated ‘Europa Europa’, Agnieszka Holland's poignant and essential film opens our eyes and speaks to the heart, challenging viewers to reflect on the moral choices that fall to ordinary people every day. This is powerful cinema that will remain fresh in the mind long after viewing.
