World Premiere/ Feature debut: Berlinale 2024
In his debut feature documentary, Robin Vanbesien traces a lived social infrastructure of care, solidarity and struggle that addresses a recent case of police and state violence in the context of migration border control in Belgium. In 2018, two-year-old Mawda Shawri was shot dead by a police officer during a migration border control on a central highway. Through the voices of activists and landscapes of the crime, Vanbesien creates a space of mourning, loss and demand for justice.
