The work is about the situation that lot of refugee are experimenting in Patras.
Most of them are sudanese coming from the Darfur region. they have left their country to flee from a civil war that still make victims.
After crossing illegally Egypt, Israel, Syria and Turkey finally they reach the Greece, the Europe. But here in Greece the situation is very hard for them. they have no rights at all. in Greece it's almost impossible to see accepted a request for asylum, also if you are from Darfur.
The only possibility is to reach Italy to have the asylum, and that's what all the people here try to do everyday.
My work want to show the living condition that Sudanese refugee find when they arrive in Europe and what they have to pass through.
