It Will Be Chaos (2018)Watch full movie now
The Mediterranean Sea is cool and temperate for most holiday makers, but for asylum seekers trying to flee from North Africa, it’s a potential grave. That’s the easiest way to summarise documentary film It Will Be Chaos… because it’s scarily safer to risk the ocean depths than to stay home in war-torn countries.
The film follows Aregai as he tries to get his family to Italy. It’s not just the waters that they need to contend with; there’s enough politics and red tape involved to drive a person mad. Yet fleeing their homeland is something they have to do. And that is made brutally clear in the interviews and the camerawork as the film crews follow the asylum seekers.
