'Special Flight' wins Prix Italia

September 27, 2012

Special Flight, the opening film at the Movies that Matter Festival in March 2012, won the prestigious Prix Italia in the competition for best TV Documentary – current affairs. The documentary shows what life is like in the Frambois administrative detention centre near Geneva. Asylum-seekers who have exhausted all their options wait for deportation, side by side with illegal immigrants. Without any due process, they sit in indefinite detention, sometimes for as long as two years.
