SynopsisConceived as a family saga, the documentary follows through ten years two brothers between Westafrica and Europe – the younger on a tiny island in the Atlantic and the elder brother as a hopeless illegal on Spanish mainland. A film about Europe’s values seen through african eyes of poor migrants, about intercontinental trade routes and connected personal hopes. The saga highlightens cultural and family background, by means of very subjective and direct longterm insights.
Aspects of leaving but also returning are showing new angles on exile but also on migration of so far anonymous boat-people washed up at South-Europe’s borderline coasts. The film is a longterm
cooperation since 2008 between filmmakers in Senegal, Germany and Spain.
