Dispatches From The Outlaw Ocean - Episode 10 - Freedom or Death
Today we are releasing the last episode of the 10-part doc series Dispatches From The Outlaw Ocean.
In international waters between the African and European coasts, an almost daily battle occurs. This episode explains how the EU is trying to stem the flow of migrants by creating a shadow immigration system that captures migrants before they reach the high seas and sends them back to Libyan detention centers run by militia. This film, shot aboard a Médecins Sans Frontières ship, reports on the desperate race between humanitarian NGOs and the Libyan Coast Guard to reach the overflowing migrant ships in the Mediterranean. Whoever wins, determines the fate of the passengers within.
This episode is based on an investigation we made back in 2021 that ran in the New Yorker. We sent a team to Tripoli and also to a five-week embed in the sea in a Médecins Sans Frontières ship which resulted in a documentary you can see here.
