Kwassa Kwassa

Tuan Andrew Nguyen, Superflex
Denmark, Vietnam 2015 / 19’
documentary

A co-production by Tuan Andrew Nguyen and the Danish collective Superflex takes on one of today’s hot topics, migration. The residents of the island of Anjouan (belonging to the Union of Comoros in the Mozambique Channel) have been using fishing boats since 2014 to try to reach the neighboring French island of Majotta, which belongs to the peripheral territory of the European Union. Up until this point, some 10,000 people have already died in their attempt to become European citizens.
