“Binxet – Under the border” is a journey between life and death, dignity and pain, struggle and freedom. It takes place along the 911 km of the turkish-Syrian border. On the one hand the ISIS, in the other Erdogan’s Turkey. In the middle the borders and one hope. This hope is called Rojava, only one point on the chart of a troubled region, a region of resistance and an example of grassroots democracy that speaks about gender equality, self-determination of peoples and peaceful coexistence. It’s on this strip of land that are playing the most important match; the battle against daesh, the control and closure of the border based on the agreement between the European Union and Turkey, the repressive violence and authoritarian Erdogan dictator. A tale of complaint about the heavy responsibility of Europe in signing an agreement that rapes lives of thousands of people. Only a small part of the history of a people who still do not resign themselves to the idea of being divided by borders. Stories of men, women and children who are the image of non-surrender.
