Synopsis:  A road movie on Human Rights. Inverting the parameters of what a road movie should be, „The March of Hope“, tackles the plight of refugees from the most unlikely perspective: a little yellow van. Two friends set out in the hope of learning first hand about the lives of refugees in Europe. During filming the “Refugee Crisis” would reach its apotheosis as the EU-Turkey Pact is agreed and the “Balkan Route” is closed. The documentary is a deeply personal perspective on the subject of human rights, and challenges the thresholds of how a humanitarian crisis can be tackled in film. “The March of Hope” is a celebration of everything which makes us a human, and a stinging rebuke in film to the xenophobia growing in Europe.


After each film there will be a minute-long break, during which we invite the audience to complete scorecards. The cards go towards the scoring of the films and are sent directly to the filmmakers to provide insight into the audience's response.
