The Longest Run

In The Longest Run we follow the refugees Jasim and Alsaleh from Syria and Iraq, who got to know each other in a Greek youth prison. Under the threat of violence from the human traffickers they have been forced to act guides for other refugees across the border between Turkey and Greece, where they were arrested by the Greek police. Now they wait for their prosecution – being themselves suspected of being human traffickers .
With unique access into both the prison and the court the director Economou portrays the boy’s situation and encroachment on human rights as they are subjected by the Greek State.
The film was a big winner at Dok Leipzig.
