For more than 15 months, we accompanied the sea rescue ship ALAN KURDI of the association "Sea-Eye" during several missions as a mediateam on the Mediterranean Sea. In addition to numerous moving moments at sea, we also produced material in countries such as Niger, Tunisia, Libya, Italy and Malta. This material, most of which has not yet been published but is very close to our hearts, we would now like to present to the public in the form of the documentary film "Route 4".
Although "Route 4" is framed by a theme, namely the danger that emanates in and through Libya, the aim is not to tell a continuous story. Rather, we want to give the audience a glimpse into what they have experienced and seen.
We want to draw attention to the problems created by the EU itself. We want to draw attention to the suffering and hardships people face on their journeys, and to the incredible work of the NGOs (in this case Sea-Eye), who are the only ones taking on the task of rescuing people in the Mediterranean.
