REFUGE | Human stories from the refugee crisis

A small team of filmmakers set out for Greece, documenting human stories from the frontlines of the European Refugee Crisis, focused on humanity and hope. The world was changing and we found ourselves at a crossroads in history, so we set out to help in the way that we knew best – with the telling, and sharing, of stories. RefugeProject.co
