One of the most neglected aspects about refugees is that they are in a situation of emergency in which they have to take a decision immediately, and whatever they decide, there is no turning back. Just as the butterfly in this video: “Fourteen seconds to decide, will you stay or fly away?” Whether the butterfly decides to stay or to fly, the circle closes anyway and takes away any possibility to go back on the tracks.
The video is part of the project Korporal Zoo, a series of movies which deal with the relationship between animals and human beings studied from several perspectives: cultural, social, environmental.
The video is part of The Refugee Film Collection
