Experiencing Interruptions?

Moughtareb "He who is in between"

Moughtareb tells the story of three young Egyptians living in a suburb of Athens, torn between home sickness, xenophobia and the hope of a better future. It's an intimate encounter with their daily life, one year after a violent attack against the first Egyptian fish monger of the neighborhood and father of one of the protagonists. This multimedia story is the result of a cross-disciplinary collaboration between a photographer (Stephanos Mangriotis) and an anthropologist (Lucile Gruntz) working on migration issues.
