Greek documentary on the Afghan refugee crisis in Athens, Greece. From the documentary Series “Beyond these walls” (SEE Productions).

“Red Zone” is a Greek documentary about the ongoing refugee crisis in Athens, Greece. The documentary portrays, through the parallel stories of four Afghan youths, the identical adventure that all Afghan immigrants and refugees go through (who for reasons of life and death have abandoned their homeland) in an effort to create a new life in the West, with Greece as a gateway to Europe. However, they escape one war only to find themselves in another, inside the “red zone” of European-Greece.

Broadcast on ERT (Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation).
