Green Border

Milwaukee Film Festival

When a family of Syrian asylum seekers is left stranded in the forest, Belarusian border guards shepherd them into Poland, but when they encounter the Polish military, they're forced back into Belarus. Activists try to rectify this cyclical, inhumane back-and-forth, meeting some futility. This harrowing, urgent drama from veteran Polish director Agnieszka Holland (SPOOR, MFF2018) constructs an intricate account of the contemporary global humanitarian crisis.
