The Lookout

US Premiere — This short documentary examines the treacherous boat ride across the Aegean Sea, just one of many hardships, endured by Syrian refugees through the eyes of an altruistic volunteer hoping to do what he can to ease their suffering. As he waits for a boat to arrive, he rummages through the remains of past boats while recounting what he has witnessed.

“This slice of life story aims to humanize one of the most urgent geopolitical issues of the day by taking the perspective of those on the front lines of the crisis. Though the politics are complicated by enormous issues like war, economics, border control, assimilation, terrorism, etc., this story ultimately boils down to the individuals who would rather make change happen than wait for it.”
