bi’bakin0 #07 takes us on a perilous journey across the sea, through streets and refugee shelters of “Fortress Europe”. Unconventional and poetic in form, Morgan Knibbe’s film documents the hopeless situation of the refugees who actually managed to make the crossing alive through the eyes of someone who already died. The voices of all these people blend together, creating a patchwork of loving memories, dreams and desires. Using a highly subjective audiovisual form, Morgan Knibbe’s film brings us closer to understanding the desire of the people to reach “prosperous Europe” and the disillusion which overwhelms them when they discover there’s no place for them.

Directed by Morgan Knibbe
Netherlands, 2014, 75 min., Original w/ English subtitles

Morgan Knibbe (1989, Netherlands) graduated from the Netherlands Film Academy with his short experimental film A Twist in the Fabric of Space. In 2014, he made Shipwreck and Those Who Feel the Fire Burning; both films focus on refugees in the Mediterranean area.
