The documentary film #MYESCAPE assesses the journey that refugees from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria and Eritrea chose to undergo, as circumstances in their home-countries have become increasingly unliveable. Hundreds of thousands are leaving their home countries, families and old lives behind, in search of some basic safety and freedom. In some cases, the mobile phone fulfilled the role of a constant companion and became a quintessential tool to facilitate the organisation of ones escape. This has lead many to document their experiences.
