No human is ilegal 2018, R: Richard C Ledes, 61 Min, OmeU

Completed in 2018, NO HUMAN IS ILLEGAL is a uniquely poetic and truthful documentary about what is arguably one of the darkest and most seminal political historical events of the start of the 21st century: the founding of a zone of exclusion within the Eurozone.

The end of March 2018 marks the second anniversary of the ruling body of the Eurozone radically revising its policy regarding undocumented migrants arriving on the Aegean shores of Greece. At that time the European Commission declared undocumented migrants arriving on the Aegean islands would be sent back to Turkey.

We were there a few weeks later with our camera on Lesvos—the main point of entry—interviewing people experiencing for the first time camps that had been constructed for the purpose of processing people transformed into concentration camps where people are held today indefinitely.

NO HUMAN IS ILLEGAL is a compassionate record of the humanity of these people whom Europe cannot send back because its statements contradict its founding principles nor let in but hold indefinitely on its border.

After months of being on the run, finally, Hasim is sitting on the bus on its way to Stuttgart, his new home. Here he finally wants to find safety and rebuild his life. Quickly, however, he comes across the thick jungle of German bureaucracy and in a loop somewhere between permit of residence and deportation. It's the beginning of a time of unsure waiting.
