Crafting Futures

International Premiere

Having experienced multiple losses and passed through difficult journeys, many migrants may see their displacement getting protracted in Greece, as they are faced with European migration regimes. Yet their lives are not only marked by immobility and victimhood, as often misguidingly assumed. Many struggle on a daily basis, they learn and create, they connect with places and other people, they resist and move on. The documentary narrates fragments of the everyday life of three persons who have shared their experience in the context of a broader study of protracted displacement in Greece.
