Daniel ’16

Dimitris Koutsiabasakos

Daniel, a German teenager, is sent to Greece, in a juvenile offender community, to serve his sentence. There, in an abandoned village of Evros river area, near the border with Turkey, he experiences unprecedented emotions and is confronted with some difficult dilemmas… His final decision will surprise everyone. We experience Daniel’s painful passage from fear and suspicion to acceptance and trust from closeby.

With this feature film the director wants to tell a story of hope, of people making connections and communicating, despite the language barrier and their different nationalities. The film was selected for Giffoni Film Festival 2020.
