In the Right Place

In the Right Place follows Bogdan Andrei, the charismatic leader of a volunteer organisation in a Greek refugee camp. His NGO Samos Volunteers supports migrants with language classes, education, and a launderette. Bogdan, who is of Romanian descent, first arrived on Samos in 2016. His initial plan was to stay for a few months. A stranger offered to sponsor him, allowing him to extend his stay. Three years later, he is moving to Germany to live together with his girlfriend, whom he also met on the island. As Bogdan returns to the mainland, he realises that his heart is split in half between Samos and his new life.

In the Right Place is available on NPO Start (Dutch) and on Vimeo with subtitles.
