How do we go about making films for children fleeing wars and crises? What inspiration can cinema give these children? Can films relieve suffering or provide hope? Seven young filmmakers from all over the world created seven non-verbal short films, each of which addresses in its own highly unique way the needs of the refugee children. Each one offers a glimpse of a brighter future. Seven films woven into an episode film, adding documentary material from Lebanon, Jordan and Greece, which creates a near-poetic melancholy that is repeatedly broken up by the energy of children – beyond all borders.
BEYOND BORDERS is a feature length episode film. The single short films (fiction, animation and documentary) can also be shown individually.
