The Land Between is a documentary set in the Spanish-run enclave city of Melilla in northern Morocco—a potential gateway to Europe for African migrants and the largest migrant detention center on the continent. The film contrasts the institutional power of the European Union and its increasingly stringent border control polices with the desperation and resentment of Africans fleeing contemporary sociopolitical and economic hardships that originated in European colonialism. In English and French with English subtitles. (Digital Presentation)
