Leaving Greece

Synopsis
A film about friendship and the European Union refugee policy, which tells the personal story of three Afghan refugees living in Greece. When entering the EU for the first time, a refugee must submit an application for asylum but every aspect of the Greek asylum system is so overstrained that it has effectively collapsed. No one is allowed to remain in Greece, and yet, according to the EU no one may leave. The three friends, Hossein, Reza and Kaka tell the story of their struggle.

Winner of Wiley Blackwell Student Film Prize at the 2015 RAI Film Festival.
