JAYU will be co-presenting George Kurian's The Crossing at this year's Syria Film Festival at Jackman Hall (AGO) on November 6th at 7PM.
Thousands of desperate Syrians have risked their lives on overcrowded, ill-suited boats in an attempt to cross the Mediterranean and find refuge in the European Union. This unique film follows a group of friends over a number of years, from their departure in Egypt, to their time on the dangerous journey to their new lives in various European countries. What emerges is a rare glimpse into the totality of the experience, making it painfully clear that for many Syrian refugees no part of re-establishing yourself is easier than the other.
