(2016) Every summer many European tourists travel to the Greek island Lesvos for a sunny holiday. This year thousands of refugees crossed the sea from Turkey and arrived on the island as well, looking for a safe haven in the European Union. Filmmakers Philip Brink and Marieke van der Velden invited tourists and refugees to talk with one another about life while sitting on a little bench overlooking the sea. The result is a short documentary with conversations of war, fleeing, home, work, love, but also cars and pets. It is an ode to humanism and shows what happens when we take time to sit down and talk with each other instead of about each other.
This project has been translated into German, Dutch, Arabic and Greek.
