Having fled the war, a Syrian family embarks on a harrowing journey to Sweden. At the border between Belarus and Poland, which means entry into the European Union, they find themselves trapped with dozens of other families, at the mercy of the military's violent methods. They gradually realise that they are unwilling hostages in a situation that goes beyond them, where everyone – border guards, humanitarian activists, the local population – is trying to play their own part...
Agnieszka Holland
Born in Warsaw in 1948, Agnieszka Holland began her career as Andrzej Wajda's assistant. She won an award at Cannes in 1980 for her first feature film, and several of her films were subsequently nominated for Oscars (Bittere Ernte (Angry Harvest), Europa Europa, W ciemności (In Darkness)). In 2023, Zielona granica (The Green Border) won the Special Jury Prize at Venice, but its subject, the crisis of welcoming migrants, was the subject of a violent smear campaign in her native country. She lives between Poland and France, where she has acquired nationality.
