Choque de Civilizaciones

Prodein. 2005. Spain. 35’


Prodein, a Melilla-based children's rights association, documents the difficult situation of sub Saharans who try to cross the border between Africa and Europe in search of a better life. “Murder” is the best way to describe the deaths that took place - and continue to take place - on the border at Melilla and Ceuta. The summary shooting of all migrants who attempt to climb the fence... “with their backs turned and defenceless, without previous arrest, without administrative or legal proceedings” can only be called “murder”.
