Lines in the Sand

Lines in the Sand is a gripping debut short documentary by Joanne Brunwin, exploring the aftermath of the Syrian war and it's affect on the now displaced community. In the wake of the largest movement of people across the globe since the Second World War, we witness the initial shock of two Syrian families attempting to come to terms with their new living situation. At a functioning petrol station on a busy highway in Northern Greece, inside an informal and unregulated campsite we meet Yassin, Rashed, Nalin and Mosab: all Syrian refugees. Each of them invite us into their personal space, allowing us to share in their grief, their memories, desires, hopes and frustrations. We learn that these 'refugees' came from a life much like ours, and dream of a time when they are able to feel at home again.

This movie blew me away; however not the first time I saw it, I had to watch it twice to truly appreciate the message and the power of this film. Maybe I wasn't fully paying attention or maybe I was too young at the time but I am so glad that I watched it again.

When you are using real actors and not "reheated" stars alongside silly semi-amateurs, plus a script that does not self plagiarize, any movie can only be good and very good!

This is the first movie I really enjoyed it. The story is pretty standard War. Fine by me. It looks fabulous, some nice toys to enjoy. If you want some fun, nothing too deep, that looks good!

Well i was sceptical when I first watched the trailer, after a weird start and some focusing. I realized, whoa this is genius. Good actors, good scenes, good story!
