BackWay to Europe Video and Campaign

This is a short documentary produced by Hexalens Media in collaboration with Global Hands, ADEPT, and James Skinner Films, exploring the "Backway" phenomenon (irregular youth migration) mainly from The Gambia in Sub-Saharan Africa, via Libya to mainland Europe. The documentary speaks of the hopelessness that drives youths from Sub-Sahara into perilous journeys across the desert and Mediterranean, often resulting in fatalities. This is a journey into the backway.
