    • Synopsis
    • A bracing study in politics and power dynamics set in a refugee detention center on the Mediterranean island of Lampedusa, Hendrikx’s confrontational docu-fiction experiment breaks down the crisis in contemporary Europe over the course of three acts in which real migrants present their stories in a classroom environment where they’re confronted by an instructor who represents different European attitudes: One forbidding, one open-armed, one the actual tangle of European Union policy.
