Shadow Game is an experimentally filmed account of the far-reaching consequences of European asylum policy. Now that fences have gone up all over Europe, seeking asylum has become almost impossible. The teenagers cross snowy landscapes and meet aggressive border police on their way. Reaching their final destination has become more difficult than ever. Their journey takes them through the whole of Europe: from Greece to North Macedonia, Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, from Italy to France and The Netherlands. The film was shot over a period of three years, partly by the main characters themselves on their phones.
To mark World Refugee Day, the United Nations Information Service (UNIS) Vienna, in cooperation with UNHCR Austria, cordially invites you to the Ciné-ONU Vienna screening of the documentary “Shadow Game”, followed by a panel discussion.
