As far-right nationalism was on the rise, this two-hour documentary offered an unforgettable window into the human stories of refugees and migrants caught in Europe’s tightened borders.
“When we were back home, we’d talk about how peaceful and wonderful it would be in Europe, and that we’d live happily ever after,” said a young man named Azizzulah, who fled Afghanistan after his brother, who worked as a translator for the U.S. Army, was killed in a bombing. “But had I known that the way would be so difficult, I would have never come.”
As the wave of global migration and refugees continued and countries became less welcoming, “Exodus: The Journey Continues” provided an eye-opening look at the evolving situation, drawing on footage filmed by the refugees themselves. The documentary also followed several people featured in the 2016 “Exodus” documentary — including Sadiq, a young man from Afghanistan who was seeking asylum in Finland, and Isra’a, a young girl who fled Syria with her family and was let into Germany before Europe’s borders began to tighten.
