Becky's Journey (2015)

Becky is a 26-year-old Nigerian woman who wants to go to Europe. She has made two attempts already.

The first time, she was stopped by immigration authorities at the airport in Nigeria with fake documents. This was the catalyst for her decision to begin a deadly journey through the Sahara Desert, hoping to catch a migration boat bound for Italy.

Becky's Journey provides rare insight into the hopes and fears of high-risk migration and human trafficking from a woman’s perspective. It documents Becky’s attempts to travel across the Mediterranean and tells the story of the many migrants that never reach Europe’s shores.
