IN THIS WORLD
Awards: Golden Bear at Berlinale 2003
Living in a camp for Pakistani refugees in Peshawar after the end of the conflict in Afghanistan, two cousins, with the help of relatives, decide to seek a better future. Crossing Iran, Turkey and Italy, the two travel retracing the steps of what used to be called “the Silk Road”. Hidden in a tractor-trailer, or in a freight container, they survey nevertheless, through menacing encounters, various dangers, and impossible living conditions. They eventually reach their ultimate goal: London.
