GEGEN DEN STROM
*not on general release
If you’ve seen The Swimmers film, you’ll know that Sara wanted to go to Lesbos to support other refugees, which she did. She got training and was working hard for some time to help refugees, but suddenly she got arrested by Greek authorities. After spending 100 days in prison, she was released on bail. She still awaits the trial, under a threat of 25 years of jail.
Gegen den Strom (Against the stream) is the documentary about Sara Mardini. It’s currently on tour in Germany. I’ve requested information on how we can organise a screening here in Brighton… watch this space!
