Calais: The Last Border

Calais: The Last Border

2003
58min
Documentary
While the British perceive Calais as the gateway to Europe or a place to buy cheap alcohol, many others see it as the last frontier in the quest for a better life in England. This character-driven film follows the lives of people who have come from afar only to be stranded so close to their final destination. Meanwhile, British expatriates, whose relationship to this space is far more casual, offer an insight to a different yet equally relevant reality.
