SUNDAY SCREENING: Migrants and the Darién Gap (2023)

Our weekly documentary film curated by the editorial team at 21WIRE

The jungle between Colombia and Panama, the Darién Gap, is one of the most important migration routes in the world. And one of the most dangerous. In the hope of a better life in the US, more than half a million people made their way through the rainforest separating Panama and Colombia in 2023 alone. The terrain is muddy and steep, and families with children quickly fall by the wayside. At the same time, drug cartels and armed gangs are also fighting for supremacy in the Darién Gap. The potential for abuse or exploitation is ever-present as they make their way towards the destination of the sanctuary states of the United States. Antonia Schaefer and Oliver Schmieg accompanied several migrants making their northbound journey. Watch:
