Migralkan is a visual journey through the Balkans to Idomeni, a sleepy village at the Greek-Macedonian border where approximately 13,000 people are left stranded in a improvised refugee camp.

The camp was setup after Austria decision at the beginning of March 2016 to shut the border denying access to migrants. This behave was followed by a domino effect in Slovenia,Croatia, Serbia and ultimately Macedonia, establishing de facto the closure of the so called -balkans route- the most common path used by people from the Middle East escaping the war to reach continental Europe.

The project is the mix of moving postcards collected along the road with vérité material filmed in the camp, a land where hope and expectations for a better life feels so close yet remains unattainable.
