What Happens to a Displaced Ant (Film – 2017)

Director’s statement

In 2015, I spent five months on two search and rescue missions with Doctors Without Borders (MSF) working for the refugees crossing the Mediterranean sea. During my resting moments, I gathered footage with my smartphone. Throughout this period, I met many humanitarians that dedicate their life to help others. They are the unknown heroes. This docu-fiction is inspired and dedicated to all those displaced ants of the planet and to those humanitarians, who, despite everything, still continue the fight.
