Footage recorded in Idomeni (Greece) between March and May, 2016.
Idomeni is a Greek border village located 100 meters from the Republic of Macedonia.
The Republic of Macedonia closed its border on the 9th of March, 2016, and about 15.000 refugees who were traveling north, mostly Syrians, got stuck in Idomeni.
The 14th of March, 2016, about 2.000 refugees left Idomeni. They crossed the Konska River, walked until the end of the fence and crossed the border. Shortly after, they were arrested by the Macedonian Army and returned to Greece.
Greek authorities evicted the camp the week of the 23rd of May, 2016.
