The search for a better life in Europe, and the many borders that must be crossed to find it.
Borders and border-towns fascinate me and test me as a filmmaker. I’m interested in why the people want to cross them, and the officials who are there to guard them, according to the laws of their country or their continent? So in my documentary, the border is the major protagonist, from the tip of South Africa to the northernmost point of Europe.
