Our dear friend Laura is going filmmaking in Greece in april. Ever modest and very essential as a friend and in our justPeople collective, she aims to shed light on the people who are stuck between borders and systems, juggling between basic needs, a family in a country in ruins, and hoping to get to a destination where they can rebuild their lives.
