Synopsis

Amir, an Iranian immigrant, has a modest flat in Athens: it’s a place of transit for migrants, those who like him have chosen to leave their country. But Greece is only a stop-over, as all of them are hoping to reach other Western nations.

MUBI's take

An intimate first-person documentary—shot with hidden cameras—Stop-Over sees director Kaveh Bakhtiari travel to Athens to capture both the struggles and the everyday life of illegal immigrants in the Greek capital. A stirring snapshot of cross-country transit in today’s Europe.
