Cannes movie tracks predicament of stranded Palestinian refugees


A stressful refugee drama screening in Cannes shines light on the Palestinian plight and the excruciating moral choices migrants have to make to help loved ones start a new life abroad.

“To a Land Unknown”, directed by Mahdi Fleifel, follows two Palestinian refugee cousins around Athens as they try to save up money to pay a smuggler to sneak them into Germany.

Chatila has left a young family behind in Lebanon to try to keep his fragile cousin Reda sober and away from their squat’s poet drug dealer long enough to gather the cash.
