Filmed in a documentary-style, this scripted thriller by master filmmaker Agnieszka Holland (Secret Garden, Europa Europa) draws attention to the fragile and very real people at the center of the so-called "immigration crisis." Green Border brutally exposes the refugee crisis at the border between Belarus and Poland, where at least 37 bodies have been unearthed, highlighting the godless hypocrisy present on both sides of the wall.
Green Border yields the powerful aesthetics of its documentary style in depicting innocent people being used as political pawns and unflinchingly speaks to both unspeakable inhumanity as well the power of compassion.
In English, Polish, Arabic, and French with English subtitles.
