Barzakh is the story of the survival of a group of kids trapped between two worlds; Morocco, the hell they think they are running away from, and Europe, the Paradise they expect to find. They walk alone, unaccompanied, that is why they seek shelter in the caves by the sea and night is their playground. While they wait to be men, they are brothers, most loyal partners, as they wander through life waiting for things to change.
★★★ "Shot entirely at night on the coastline of Melilla, which turns otherworldly once darkness falls, the film observes, often from a distance, young and undocumented Moroccan boys who are waiting and hoping to cross to Europe.....a poignant watch, highlighting the psychological and physical toll of border crossing." - The Guardian
