The March of Hope

Running Time:  79 minutes
Country:  UK/Germany 
Genre:  Documentary 
Director:  Jim Kroft 

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 from Berlin 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 and emotional perspective on the subject of human rights and challenges the thresholds of how a humanitarian crisis can be tackled in the film. Rather than becoming a film on refugees, it became a living document to the power of the human spirit in unspeakable circumstances.

The March of Hope is a celebration of everything which makes us a human, and a stinging rebuke in the film to the xenophobia growing in Europe.

Countries of Filming: Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Macedonia, the former Yugoslav Republic of, Serbia, Slovenia
