Ep 10 | Freedom or Death

Freedom or Death


In international waters between the African and European coasts, an almost daily battle occurs. To stem the flow of migrants, the EU has created a shadow immigration system that captures migrants before they reach the high seas and sends them back to Libyan detention centers run by militia. This film, shot aboard a Médecins Sans Frontières ship, reports on the desperate race between humanitarian NGOs and the Libyan Coast Guard to reach the overflowing migrant ships in the Mediterranean. Whoever wins, determines the fate of the passengers within.
