On 8 June 2015 the Amnesty International Student Group Utrecht will organise a theme evening about immigration. During the evening there will be a screening of the documentary "The Land Between" and a Q&A with the filmmaker via Skype.
"The Land Between" offers an intimate insight into the hidden and desperate lives of Sub-Saharan African migrants living in the mountains of northern Morocco. For most, their dream is to enter Europe by jumping a highly-militarised barrier into Melilla, a Spanish enclave on the African continent.
With unique and unprecedented access, this film documents the everyday life of these migrants trapped in limbo, as well as the extreme violence and constant mistreatment they face from both the Moroccan and Spanish authorities. It also explores many universal questions, including how and why people are prepared to risk everything, including their life, to leave their country, their family and friends, in search of a new and better life.
There will be a Q&A afterwards with the filmmaker himself: David Fedele, Australian independent documentary filmmaker, through a Skype connection.
Everyone interested is invited to come and there is no entrance fee. A small donation for our group is highly appreciated.
