The struggles often meet and overlap, like those of the Kurds and the French “yellow vests”. The same struggle for freedom and social equality meets the identical repression. Drawing artist Mamoste Dîn introduces to us the self-managed camp of Kurdish refugees in Lavrio, Greece. In a pendular motion between Greece and France and between individual experiences and political fights of Kurdish activists, we follow the young Judith who came to document the daily life of the camp. We will get to know and deeply appreciate its dwellers.
