The film is about motives for migration, Becky’s perceptions of trafficking and tells the often untold story of immobility, of the many migrants whose dreams of Europe are disrupted even before they reach the shores.

Becky’s Journey (2014) is about Becky, a 26 year old Nigerian woman who made two attempts to go to Europe to sell sex. The first time she was intercepted with counterfeit documents in the airport in Lagos, Nigeria, by immigration authorities. This made her decide to begin a deadly journey through the Sahara desert hoping to embark on a smuggler boat bound for Italy. The film is about migration, sex work and human trafficking seen from the perspective of Becky. We meet Becky as she contemplates what to do next.

This event is held in collaboration with Visual Wednessdays.
