This film is about children. About adolescents on their way to Europe, fleeing from war and poverty. During their journey they encounter the most absurd and dangerous obstacles: a talking fence, bears, minefields, human traffickers and a whole lot of border control. An exciting documentary that pushes the boundaries of the genre and gives us a look into the dark, unknown sides of Europe.
Selected by: Tina Farifteh, Film and art curator

Shadow Game is an adventure film set across Europe with teenagers as our guides. The documentary takes you into the harsh reality of underage boys, looking for a safe future in Europe. Upon arrival, crossing borders (‘The Game’) turns out to be a life-threatening endeavor.

Tonight, we’re talking to directors Eefje Blankevoort and Els van Driel. How were they able to follow these boys for three years? How did the film change them? And what do they hope to achieve?
