Green Border

Directed by Agnieszka Holland

In the treacherous and swampy forests that make up the so-called “green border” between Belarus and Poland, refugees from the Middle East and Africa seeking passage to the European Union find themselves trapped in a geopolitical crisis. 

A harrowing, urgent drama from veteran Polish director Agnieszka Holland, Green Border follows the intertwining stories of several pawns in this invisible war: Julia, a newly minted activist who has given up her comfortable life; Jan, a young border guard; and a Syrian family escaping the violence of their homeland.

"Agnieszka Holland’s brutal and timely drama shines a dark spotlight on the horrors faced by refugees."

The Guardian

"A gripping account of the inhumanity and depravity that ensues when those fleeing persecution are made political pawns."
