Lifeboat, no Human is Illegal and the Hostage


LIFEBOAT showcases the crisis of refugees desperate enough to risk their lives in rubber boats leaving Libya in the middle of the night and pushing off into the unknown, despite a high probability of drowning.
With few resources but certain that civil society must intervene, a team of global volunteers risks the waves of the Mediterranean to pluck refugees from sinking rafts.

In a political environment increasingly hostile to immigrants and refugees, documenting and showcasing the real-life predicament of those fleeing war and oppression is more vital and important than ever. In a real-life context with dire consequences, the LIFEBOAT puts a human face on one of the world’s greatest contemporary, global crises and provides a spark of hope surrounding how civil society can intervene in the refugee crisis in a meaningful way.

Completed in 2018 and filmed entirely on the Greek island of Lesbos, NO HUMAN IS ILLEGAL is a documentary about what is perhaps one of the darkest and most seminal political historical events of the start of the 21st century: the founding of a zone of exclusion within the Eurozone. The spring of 2018 marked the second anniversary of the European Commission, the ruling body of the Eurozone, radically revising its policy regarding undocumented migrants arriving on the Aegean islands of Greece. At that time the European Commission declared undocumented migrants arriving on the Aegean islands would be sent back to Turkey.

THE HOSTAGE fetches Friedrich von Schillers ballad about a friendship beyond death to
highly topical today's Berlin: Two refugee girls exchange their identities, because one of
them shall be deported and desires to say goodbye to her lover. The airplane with her
best friend is about to start. But she runs to free the hostage. This act of true love
moves the passengers. And they stand up for the girls to prevent the take off.
