Event description
Five staging posts on a journey: five borderlands, five limbos. Five warehouses for souls.

About this Event

In 2015 and 2016 the so-called 'migrant crisis' broke Europe. The consequences are still unfolding today. But what actually happened during those fateful and chaotic months, before the fences came up?

'Flight' is a new feature documentary by Vaughan Pilikian. Shot in during 2015-16 at five locations on the chaotic and dangerous overland route through Europe, it revisits the founding event of our era. Eschewing polemic and hyperbole, the film bears witness at ground level. It weaves its music of images to the soaring maqaams of Iraqi saxophonist Amar Alaw, in search of something both more intimate and more universal.

Forget about the rhetoric and the headlines. Shorn of subtitles, explanations and commentary, what you will witness in this film you will recognise for yourself, because it is the most basic dream and desperation common all humanity: to journey on, to survive adversity. To strive for better things.
