SIKH INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2010: DOCUMENTARY
Stranded in the Strait (Work in Progress)
Directors: Alberto Garcia Ortiz, Agatha Maciaszek
In the densely forested hills above Ceuta, a Spanish enclave on the Moroccan coast, 57 young Indian immigrants await their fate in a shanty community they’ve built to avoid deportation. With lush visual style, the film accompanies them in their daily trials as they scramble to survive, waiting to cross the last 14 km that separate them from Europe. Will they make it there?
