Green Border


Green Border

Friday 19 July 2024 - Thursday 25 July 2024


Refugees from the Middle East and Africa trying to reach the European Union are trapped, in the treacherous and swampy forests that make up the so called ‘green border’ between Belarus and Poland, .

Their bondage falls within a geopolitical crisis cynically engineered by Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko.

In an attempt to provoke Europe, refugees are lured to the border by propaganda promising easy passage to the EU.

Pawns in this hidden war, the lives of Julia, a newly minted activist who has given up her comfortable life, Jan, a young border guard, and a Syrian family intertwine.

30 years after Europa Europa, three-time Oscar Nominee Agnieszka Holland’s poignant new feature Green Border opens our eyes.

The film speaks to the heart, and challenges us to reflect on the moral choices that fall to ordinary people every day.

‘It’s a supremely accomplished work, a multistranded story shot in stark black and white’ – The Guardian ★★★★★
