Bordering on a Life

Over a ten year period, two migrants work to build a life for themselves and their families in Spain.

Hashem and Alicia have a simple need: to build a safe and sustainable home for themselves and their families in Europe. However, due to their origin outside of the European Union’s border - Hashem is from Bangladesh and Alicia Peru - the pursuit of their need subjects them to a life of strenuous working conditions, economic precarity, and long-term separation from family. Following Hashem, Alicia, and their families across three continents over ten years, Bordering on a Life documents the real-life effects of the EU border regime, a regime which distributes unequally rights and privileges to those who transverse it.
