«The first issue that struck me was that of invisibility.»
For her documentary film THE REMAINS – AFTER THE ODYSSEY, Nathalie Borgers proceeds from the statistics on refugees attempting to reach Europe and adds an individual, human dimension to the sober facts and figures. In her film, shot on Lesbos and in Vienna, she investigates the visible and invisible traces left by attempts to make the dangerous Mediterranean crossing – on the coastlines, in the survivors and in those who provide what humanitarian help they can in exceptional circumstances.
