    A fresh breeze blowing over the sea of refugee-themed documentaries that have been splashing festival shores for years now.

    Vladan Petkovic, Cineuropa

    IS 69 MINUTES OF 86 DAYS ESSENTIAL FESTIVAL VIEWING? Yes. This documentary, filmed with adept long takes as it occupies a child’s frame of mind, stands out against other refugee-themed docs from recent years.
