After 18 months of screening THE LAND BETWEEN at over 100 public screenings around the world, the film will be screened at the EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT in Brussels, Belgium on TUESDAY 16th JUNE (next week), followed by a debate.

This screening is dedicated to all migrants, asylum seekers and refugees in Morocco and elsewhere, who are on the road to seek a "better life" for themselves and their families. And is in respect to these two paragraphs from the film, when a man tells his story after the Moroccan military have badly beaten him, and killed his friend Clement:

"You and the European Union must see how people that enter Melilla are sent back. The camp was created for migrants, but when we enter they send us back, people must know the situation, and also see the situation with the military. The military beat us like animals, they break our heads."

"You must tell the European Union. They pay the Moroccans to guard the border, but the Moroccans took this to have a war. We are not armed with we go to the border to climb the fence. We go to the fence to leave and to search for life."

OTHER SCREENINGS
