Video: Barcelona or Barsakh

"Barcelona or Barsakh" Trailer from Refugees Doc on Vimeo.

Trailer for the short-documentary about the struggle of Senegalese people risking their lives in their pursuit of reaching Spain, crossing the Atlantic Ocean for days in precarious fishing boats. Such perilous quest is rooted in the desertification of their habitat, absence of work and government support, and the lack of food due to massive fishing along the Senegalese coast by major foreign fishing companies. Our main protagonist, Keba, takes us along his journey as he prepares for another attempt to leave Senegal and illegally enter Spain by boat.
