Kati Piri, Member of the European Parliament, speaks with Wotienke Vermeer about the European borders and the refugee crisis.
The sleepy Bulgarian village, portrayed in The Good Postman, lies close to the border of Turkey and has been the major gateway to Europe since time immemorial. The rundown houses are home to a mere 38 residents, many of whom are well past 65. Recently, however, they see droves of refugees passing by. These are Syrians, fleeing the war in the hope of finding a better place in Europe. The local mailman, Ivan, has an idea for his town: Why don’t they ask the refugees to stay? Kati Piri speaks about the European borders and the current refugee crisis.
