The Fortress

La forteresse

Directed by Fernand Melgar
Switzerland, 2008


Switzerland has just passed the most restrictive asylum law in all of Europe. This documentary film respectfully directs our attention to a reception centre for asylum-seekers. At this austere transit facility, 200 men, women and children wait after a journey.
