We’re an international team of filmmakers and we would use your help with funding our new project – GOING WEST!
In the recent months, the Middle East has seen a mass migration of people fleeing its conflicts and wars. Among these refugees, there’s a number of LGBT* folks leaving for Europe to not only find peace, but also the freedom to be themselves.
Back home, they are at a hight risk of violence, torture or death – and this risk follows them along their way until they reach safety.
The short documentary we’re working on will give space to specific refugees to express their concerns and hopes for their future lives. The film will focus on their personal stories and the similarities between them, trying to find their common ground. One of the side themes will also be how new technologies enabled their escape and what it is that they wouldn’t share with the world on social media, what is left unsaid. To get a bigger picture, we’ll also interview the official organizations that provide services for these people.
Here is our INDIEGOGO crowdfunding campaign. You can support our crew by liking our Facebook page or just support the project financially – any $ will help – we work for free, all the money go to the production expenses.
