Melilla, la frontiera della vergogna

First prize - Social realism shorts, edition 2015

"Melilla, the border of shame": Togetherwith Ceuta, Melilla is the only European land border with Africa. Three border fences 12 km long and 9 meter high divide Melilla from Marocco. Hundreds migrants try to storm these fences everyday, trying to escape from war and starvation, but when they are onto Spanish territory the Guardia Civil force them back to Marocco, that is a violation of the European convention of human rights. The documentary tells the connivance between Spanish and Moroccan authorities on illegal repatriation.
