Indefinite

Darren Emerson

United Kingdom, 2016 / 14 min / English / VR Documentary

Guided by the powerful voices of survivors, “Indefinite” takes the audience on an immersive journey into the uncertainty and despair of the UK’s immigration detention system.

Concealed behind prison walls, on the hem of cities, thousands of people are being held with no time limit. In this psychological pressure cooker people are desperately trying to prove why they should be allowed to stay in the UK.

The film hears the voices of those, the „Indefinite“ with first-hand experience of being detained as they lift the veil on the realities of a detention system that strips away identities, and further damages society's most vulnerable.

With the support of the British Film Council.
