HAMNEN I CALAIS har sedan -90-talet varit en viktig transitpunkt för flyktingar, asylsökande och migranter som vill komma till Storbritannien. 

Här finns människor från Afghanistan, Eritrea, Irak, Syrien, Darfur och Syd-Sudan som, utan lagliga vägar in, försöker ta sig över på lastbilar, färjor och bilar. Ofta riskerar (eller förlorar) de sina liv. 

2015 eskalerade försöken att stoppa migranterna när Storbritannien lade nära 2 miljoner pund på stängsel. 2016 rensade franska myndigheter platsen där 9000 personer bodde under primitiva förhållanden. Det följdes av att ett flyktingläger i Dunkirk brändes ner, några kilometer därifrån.

BIO: Futuro Berg was born and raised in Santiago Chile but has since the age of 18 lived and worked in more than 5 countries of Europe. During his career he has studied Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Malmo, worked as an activist in a variety of organizations and co-directed Cinema Politica Malmo for 5 years. As well as his social work in the non-profit sector his main focus has been in creating photography and film that strengthen the visibility of people who are usually underrepresented and over seen by the mainstream media. The last 6 months of the year 2017 where spent in the refugee camp of Calais , France to document, photograph and to help generate visibility of a crisis that was being silenced by the French and English government. In addition to his photography he was involved in the creation of a media team that now works directly from Calais creating content for the different media outlets interested in Calais as well as giving out disposable cameras that will later be published in the form of a book telling the story of the migrants from their own perspective and eye.
