Shadow Game

By Eefje Blankevoort & Els Van Driel

If it's a game, then it's one of the most dangerous. Every day, teenagers flee war-torn countries, attempting to cross European borders in search of a better future. Hostile nature, fences or armed guards - every step they take towards their final destination might also prove a step towards death. A stunning coming-of-age film in which lives are consumed on the clandestine roads of a fortress continent.

Co-presented with Save the Children and Internazionale
