WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Louise Wallwein tells the urgent story of our times, migration, from a personal perspective of being a volunteer with Kos Solidarity in Greece. A small island wakes up to find itself at the epicentre of a humanitarian crisis. How do the inhabitants respond? Using first-hand experience, recorded interviews and film, Wallwein explores the migration stories of Kos, Greece. What motivates local people to take action, to provide comfort to the thousands that arrived? What motivates volunteers to put their lives on hold and get involved? What makes refugees set out on a perilous journey, leaving their homes? What would you do?
