Competition - Fiction

Europa

By Haider Rashid

Kamal flees Iraq.  In the forests of Turkey and Bulgaria, mercenaries hunt migrants with guns like beasts.  Kamal runs for his survival.  Throughout this Cannes-winning fiction, Haider Rashid immerses us in an immersive thriller using image and sound techniques from virtual reality: we breathe, gasp, and tremble with Kamal during an electrifying experience, pushing the boundaries of cinema.
