Online Shorts: Introducing the Issues

When You Don’t Exist is Amnesty International’s campaign for the human rights of migrants, refugees and asylum-seekers in Europe and at its borders.

 

Studies suggest it takes four minutes of direct eye contact for strangers to fall in love. So Amnesty International decided to conduct a simple experiment: refugees and Europeans sat across from each other and looked each other in the eyes. Watch and see what happens next.

 

A short documentary from Amnesty International, made by Tomo Brody, in the refugee camp in Calais featuring a sample of 65 different testimonies from men, women and children from seven different countries.
