Synopsis

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

Our take

Chronicling undocumented immigrants and asylum-seekers who must justify their presence in affluent Switzerland, this is a stirring and compassionate documentary rendered in stunning cinematography. Winner of the Filmmakers of the Present Golden Leopard at Locarno Festival.
