After fleeing his native country of Afghanistan at just 15, Wasiullah has spent his adolescent years in Denmark, relishing in teenage antics but also nervously awaiting acceptance for permanent residency. Denmark provides support for unaccompanied child refugees such as Wasi and his friends, but only til they reach the age of 18. Then they are on their own. Micheal Graverson’s eye-opening film investigates what happens to the many refugee children who disappear from asylum centres year after year, when their application for asylum is rejected. It provides brutally honest depictions of the transience, isolation and frightening uncertainty they face. A crucial piece of modern filmmaking, 'DREAMING OF DENMARK' finally gives an authentic voice to those who desperately need to be heard.
