Border Diaries. The migrant voices of the Mediterranean
Spanish filmmaker Irene Gutierrez was born in Septa, the border between Spain and Morocco. Now she returns fifteen years after she left, but the place she finds is completely different from the place where she grew up.
This film was supposed to be the diary of her journey, but she finds someone else’s voices, other border diaries.
