Filmed at the port of Piraeus, Athens, The Port features interviews with some of the Syrian, Iraqi, Afghani, Yezidi and Kurdish women, men and children stuck there.
Living in tents and over-crowded ferry terminals, they wait and self-organize for the right to continue their journeys and to seek hoped-for refuge. Glimpses of endurance, frustration, the humiliation of forced dependency and the ongoing hope of the possibility to be able to re-build lives of dignity, safety and meaning.
The Port is the second part of a three-part series on the lives and struggles of refugees in Greece. The first film — The Border — can be watched here. The third film featuring interviews with refugees at the unofficial Eko camp at Polykastro, Greece will be released shortly. All are intended as awareness-raising and hopefully solidarity-expanding resources.
