The Intimate Portrait of Migration
1 January 2019 | by mariakupcuSee all my reviews

News coverage about another capsized boat of migrants or attempt to cross the border doesn't capture the depth and intimacy of what this kind of journey really demands -- not just from the migrants, but from all who come into contact with them (whether supportive or not). The film-makers worked over several years to follow several migrant stories and, in doing so, capture the texture of a massive geopolitical challenge with incredible humanity. From the mundane details of waiting for a smuggler's signal to the terrifying, It Will Be Chaos raises universal questions about boundaries, rights of belonging and acceptance. I came away with a more nuanced understanding and appreciation of all sides. This film is especially helpful for teachers and students of international affairs.
