DESTINATION EUROPE-01-01Destination Europe: Global Perspectives on the Refugee Crisis

Still image from the film The Land Between

Over the past decade, ongoing conflicts in the Middle East and Africa have produced the largest wave of human migration since the World War II, with a majority of refugees targeting Europe as their destination. This series of award-winning documentary films offers insight into the human, political, economic, and ethical dimensions of a global crisis by juxtaposing European and non-European perspectives. The geographic scope of the series is vast, documenting itineraries originating in Syria, Afghanistan, Gambia, Sierra Leone, and Senegal; passing through Turkey, Libya, Morocco, and Serbia; terminating in Germany, Greece, France, and the U.K. This partnership is supported through IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program.

This series is sponsored by the Institute for European Studies, the departments of French and Italian and Spanish and Portuguese, the Center for the Study of the Middle East, and IU Cinema.
