So neccesary
1 August 2018 | by cineinvisibleSee all my reviews

We are the team of the Internacional Film Festival of Bilbao "Cine Invisible" and we are very glad to have this short film within our film election for the festival. The story about the refugee in Athens make you feel the problem and the situation very intensly. There are great pictures among the film and the quality is high. These type of creations could make people change their mind and realise how the world in going on like.
