“Brothers Across Borders” is an interactive film about the journey of a young Syrian refugee, in which you are in charge of the narrative and thereby the fate of the main character, Ismael. The film is mainly targeted students, but is available for everyone to try. Thanks to our cool collaborators Mikkel Keldorf and Mikkel Cantzler. Brothers Across Borders won a Digital Communication Award in 2019.

You have a long journey ahead of you

“Brothers Across Borders” is an interactive film based on the true stories of Syrian refugees in Turkey. You are Ismael. A 21-year old Syrian refugee on a mission to find his brother, Muhammed. Muhammed, as the oldest brother, went to Turkey to find a new and safer home for the family, but never returned to Syria. Nor has he contacted the family, since he left Turkey. Now it’s all up to you. The future of Ismael, Muhammed and their entire family is in your hands.

So maybe you should just get right at it. You have a long journey ahead of you. You’ve packed the most necessary clothes, a bottle of water, your passport, a very scarce amount of money and your phone. Safe travels. And remember to keep in touch with your family at home.
