Reaching Albion

Journey of a lifetime.

Filmed in Calais, France.

Migrants wash up against the Calais borders like flotsam upon the beach. They are unwanted travellers, their journeys begun amid the fire of war and the deaths of their families, and ending with the slap of cold wind that strikes the Calais fences each night. They have travelled so far upon this dream of a better place that they have no choice but to continue. So they risk their lives each night on the journey of a lifetime, even as thousands of tourists shunt through the Eurotunnel to the clink of champagne and a weekend away.
