During the last months, people of Europe are facing the largest challenge since the Second World War and that’s the massive migration flows.
Hundreds of thousands desperate people from war zones are trying to cross the Aegean Sea and reach the ground European countries believing it’s safer there.
Unfortunately, very often the Aegean Sea becomes their wet grave.
As the borders were closed by the so-called Visegrad countries, tens of thousand people, among them 1/3 are children, are trapped in Greece.
Greek society is watching with great shock the drama of those people, trying to help as much as possible. Unfortunately it’s an uneven battle as its taking place under a very acute economic crisis.
Children, the most sensitive receivers of society, raise their own voice. Armed with a camera, they make films to talk about what they’re experiencing, to express their thoughts and desires.
During the last days 4 films created by students (mostly from the outermost regions of Greece) went online. Here we present those films along with an excellent animation created during Zizanimation workshop in the frames of the last edition of Olympia International Film Festival and Camera Zizanio.
Let’s hear children’s voice.
