Cine Migration: Encampment

  Dokumentarfilm von Anne-Claire Adet & Yasmine Abd El Aziz , Schweiz, 2016, OV E/f, 14 Minuten


The short documentary movie is a sensorial immersion in the suffocating life of an underground shelter asylum-seekers are crammed into upon their arrival in Geneva. Anne-Claire Adet uses refugees' own footage and interviews one Sudan journalist who has been housed in a bunker.

In a 2013 report the National Commission on the Prevention of Torture, “considers that these military installations are adapted solely for short-term stays, of a maximum 3 weeks.” Considered from the start as a temporary solution, the settling of migrants in PC shelters has been normalised. In February 2016, 10 bunkers housed over 600 people.
