Azadi | 2018 | 40’

In 2016 a controversial deal was signed between the European Union and Turkey to stop refugees from making the short, yet perilous crossing to the Greek islands. The refugees who do make it to these islands, must wait indefinitely for their asylum cases to be processed. This documentary portrays the unusual transit zone the island of Lesvos has become, through the eyes of two Pakistani refugees and a local fishing community.
