"Eleven strangers are forced to share a confined space on a journey into the unknown. Under severe and uncertain circumstances they face their own prejudices and fears, but have to depend on each other in order to survive. The dynamics of the group creates a reflection of the world outside."

The sort film "A Society", by Jens Assur, presented at 20º Curtas Vila do Conde, is now available online. This is an initiative of several European film festivals fighting against xenophobia in Europe. European film festivals thank Jens Assur for providing his film to spread the word against xenophobia.

Take a few minutes to meet these refugees and please share their story with all your friends and raise your voice against xenophobia and in favour of a European society in solidarity!
