  • Documentary
  • 1h 10m

Life Jacket is a powerful documentary that takes us on a journey through the most traumatic times in the lives of the refugees stranded on the Greek Island of Lesvos. From surviving the war in their countries to crossing the Aegean Sea, trusting only a simple and flimsy Life Jacket to keep them safe as they hope to reach a safer future. Depleted of human dignity, little do these refugees know that they will end up in Moria Camp – where they’re forced to live a different and ongoing trauma on that small Greek Island. Life Jacket offers the voices, screams, and torments of the refugees as they struggle for their basic human rights – To be treated with respect and dignity, to have better living conditions and to get the education they missed, in a future without war.
