How does it feel to leave home because life is not bearable anymore? How do the travel, the arrival and the consequences of the decision to flee impact the rest of your life? Through the eyes of young and talented filmmakers from all over Europe, this short film selection offers an intimate journey beyond the usual news images of migrants and their plight.

CEPS – a Brussels-based leading think-tank on European policies – is organising a short film screening within the context of the SOURCE project – Network of Excellence, funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework.
