In early 2016 the European Commission decided to close the so-called Western Balkans route, leaving thousands of people stranded on the Greek side of the Greece/Macedonia border. The Idomeni Refugee Camp became their makeshift home as they tried to make their way into Europe. Maria Kourkouta’s ambitious and powerful documentary examines the day-to-day reality of living as a refugee, before turning to the protest that followed as the ‘residents’ of Idomeni occupied the train tracks when the Greek police tried to close the camp. Spectres Are Haunting Europe is more humanistic than political, but still makes a powerful statement about European society’s most recent failure.
