A journey through hell by GrandclÃ©ment, Daniel
Not only Europe is considered as a refuge for Africans who attempt to flee famine and war in their home countries. In this confronting documentary the French journalist Daniel Grandclement follows people who are trying to make it to the Middle East. He travels inside a boat trafficking Africans to Yemen. It is very confrontational to see that anyone who complains is beaten or thrown overboard. When the boat approaches the shore, the refugees are forced to jump into the sea and swim to shore. But sadly many refugees can't swim or are so exhausted they drown.
The desperate political and economic conditions in Somalia and Ethiopia have led thousands of people across that region to attempt to cross the gulf of Aden to search for a better life in Yemen and Saudi Arabia.
