Some 30 years after she made Europa Europa, three-time Oscar-nominee Agnieszka Holland returns with a powerful, timely and award-winning feature that speaks to the heart as it addresses global migration with striking urgency.

Unflinching in its exploration of the current migrant crisis, Green Border draws on real-life experiences of refugees journeying through the primeval forest on the Polish-Belarusian border to seek asylum in the EU. The issues are political and strategic, but here the focus is on inter-personal relationships and everyday experience.

Working with refugees and professional actors, Holland presents a variety of perspectives – refugees, aid workers and border guards – challenging us to confront complex moral choices. How would we respond? Are we comfortable with decisions made in our name? Shot in stark monochrome, Green Border is a call for compassion for those who desperately need it and a plea for humanity toward those who withhold it.
