Beyond Hope, I Still Won’t Give Up

Documentary on swedish immigration politics. Aida refuses to accept that Sweden expels people to countries which cannot guarantee their safety. Refusing to turn a blind eye to Sweden’s inhumane asylum politics, she struggles for the right of asylum-seekers to residence permits in Sweden. A film about courage, about not giving up in the face of hopelessness.
