No good deed goes unpunished in Maggie Peren’s impressive feature woven around attitudes to the waves of African refugees desperately seeking a better life in Europe. Zola and his son Mamadou are among the ten survivors of a refugee boat washed ashore in the Canaries. German tourist Nathalie is the first person to reach them and her instinct is to do everything she can to help. Border guard José’s instinct is to start the process that will see them deported. Is he callous or just realistic? Is Nathalie admirable or hopelessly naive? The struggle to do the right thing places issues of responsibility, compassion and moral duty at the heart of an utterly compelling human drama.
We are delighted that director Maggie Peren will introduce the film and participate in a Q&A following the screening with GFF Co-director Allan Hunter.
