A short film by David Aronowitsch and Hanna Heilborn
– The boat was like a little fly in the sea, in two-meter high waves. We just drifted without any food or water. Sharaf, 17, is one of thousands of youths that have been fleeing in unseaworthy boats across the ocean and arriving in Gran Canaria the last years. Sharaf was lucky, he survived. Thousands have died in the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean trying to get into the EU. “Sharaf” is completed during the spring of 2012. It is the third and final part in a trilogy of animated documentaries about children and young people in vulnerable situations, by David Aronowitsch and Hanna Heilborn
