Documentary: “Container”

The John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation supported the production of a documentary short film regarding the refugee issue in Greece, emphasising on unaccompanied minor children. The documentary entitled “Container” takes place in Samos and aims to highlight the difficult living conditions that refugees face in the understaffed and overpopulated hotspot located in Vathy.

The documentary records the life of a group of young boys that have just arrived in the island and are living in the Samos hotspot; it highlights the relationships they built with each other against all odds. The film is expected to premiere in the United States of America in 2020 and is featured in the award-winning documentary forum of the New York Times, Op-Docs. See the video here

  • Approximately 5,000 refugees live in the Samos hotspot, 3,000 of whom are unaccompanied minors, while the capacity of the infrastructures does not exceed 700 people.


“The generous support of the Latsis Foundation was instrumental for the completion of the documentary short film the ‘Container’, following the Oscar nominated documentary ‘4.1 Miles’. I could not be more grateful for this collaboration with the Latsis Foundation as we are awaiting the screening of the film in the entire world, through which we are reminding viewers that the refugee crisis is on-going and should not be ignored.”
