Colis Suspect (meaning Suspicious Package in French), wants to answer the following question: What’s behind Europe’s Fortress? The documentary, mainly shot in France, focuses on the EU system of borders and migration, as well as the persuasion and influence of the security industry lobby.
Produced by Marta Hernàndez and Samuel Rubin
The film counts with ten interviews with experts in law, migration, security, defense industry, and international relations. In addition, the analysis is articulated together with the story of Mohammed, a poet, and activist for the rights of the undocumented and a refugee from Sudan living in Paris.
The documentary explores how the idea of security has been reformulated in the current context of economic crisis and terrorist alert. Why is Europe fortified? What does it affect and who does it benefit?
