In a small room, similar to the likes of a classroom, a white man meets three groups of hopeful refugees and describes to them their predicament since arriving in Europe. For each group, he creates a different scenario, each delivered on a different tone and with a different attitude- from detachment, to compassion, to cold procedural habit. Filmmaker Guido Hendrikx is a provocateur. His sharp docu-fiction about Europe’s refugee crisis is a masterful, though brutal, performance which forces us to question our own opinions about this global issue. It is a documentary experiment fit for the present, where we are confronted not only with dilemmas about physical borders between countries, but also with the increasingly more urgent question of where to draw the line between fact and fiction.
