"Almost There," the Film Festival on Human Rights and Migration, will open Wednesday at Dar el-Nimer. Over the next five days 16 international films on this theme will be projected around Lebanon. FFHRM is dedicated to highlighting issues on migration, refugees and their stories. The film is inspired by a letter allegedly found on the body of an unidentified refugee who drowned trying to cross the Mediterranean.In 2016 MSF saved about 20,000 people trying to cross the Mediterranean. The animated film was created as MSF's plea that countries have more sympathy and accept refugees willingly. Scheller says the program was selected to represent as much diversity in causes of migration as possible, the aim being to educate people on this complex topic.
