« Ceuta, prison by the sea » tells the paths of five migrants in the Spanish enclave of Ceuta, Northern Morocco. They have left everything they had to try their luck into Europe only to find themselves locked up in an open sky prison, at the gates of Europe. They cope with both the hope of obtaining a pass and the fear of being deported to their countries.
In this film we mean to tell the story of migration, to tell about the invisible North-South frontier and about through other eyes, those of the migrants who are blocked at its doors and fantasize about a Europe they have never seen. For weeks, we walked in the steps of our characters to share and feel what their daily life, their doubts and hopes were, to understand the dream of Europe as perceived through their eyes, through strictly human stakes.
Our point was to plunge the onlooker into this sweet prison, along with Iqbal, Marius, Simon and Nur, immerging him subjectively without ever stopping, with no voice-over or added commentary.
The film is supported by Amnesty International, Migreurop, the League for Human Rights, the European Association for Human Rights and le movement Utopia.
