NOT TO BE MISSED
Everyone today should see #MyEscape by Elke Sasse, a film that tells the migrants odyssey through images filmed by the protagonists themselves.
Our project SOLE LUNA SCHOOL invites teachers to contact us in order to offer students a real view of what is happening: an opportunity for reflection and debate.

The documentary film #MYESCAPE assesses the journey that refugees from Afghanistan, Syria and Eritrea chose to undergo, as the circumstances in their home-countries became increasingly unliveable. Hundreds of thousands are leaving their countries, families and old lives behind, in search of some basic safety and freedom. In most cases, the mobile phone became a quintessential tool to facilitate the organisation of ones escape and the constant companion. This has lead many to document their experiences.
