Vanessa Redgrave transposes her political activism to the big screen in this highly topical documentary. For her behind-the-camera debut, legendary actress Vanessa Redgrave examines the historical context of the ongoing migrant crisis by looking at it from the perspective of the major population displacements that affected Europe in the 20th century. Combining autobiography and a militant call to action, the 80-yearold director navigates the age-old story of the refugee and launches an ultimate appeal to humanity.
