Souls of a River

Documentary Film, DE/GR/AT 2022, digital, 83 min

A traveler sets out in search of clues in the landscape of his memories — at the Evros River, which forms part of the border between Turkey and Greece. Here he meets a forensic pathologist who tries to identify those refugees who died while crossing the river. A story about drawing borders and crossing them becomes a visually powerful, sensitive, and relentless documentary essay about current political failure.
