Talib Shah Hossaini, a 37-year-old Afghan filmmaker and asylum seeker, lives in Moria on the Greek island of Lesbos. Moria was Europe’s largest refugee camp until it was razed in the fall of 2020. After a year in the camp Talib Shah, instead of giving in to despondency, decided to turn his suffering into art and made a film called PICNIC, in which members of his family and other refugees appear as amateur actors. The documentary chronicles Hossaini’s directorial work and first public screening in Moria. A film about the power of dreams, art as a means of survival, and current immigration policies in Europe.
