CLANDESTINE

“Clandestine” is an ongoing documentary project about migration from West Africa to Europe and follows the perilous journey undertaken by young West African men, through the vast expanses of the Sahara, across the ocean and into Europe. Based on 5 years of anthropological research, “Clandestine” is an intimate investigation of men who risk everything for a better life for their family, on a journey that progressively strips them of their human rights. The immediate drama of the actual crossing is mirrored in a profound psychological and symbolic journey that occurs once they arrive in a European country and are suspended in an existential no man’s land.
