Ferry

Each year thousands of stolen cars turn up in countries like Romania, where they are sold on the black market. How do these cars get there? Who supplies them? What drives them?

This is a short film co-production by Columbia University and DFFB film school students, dealing with migration and illegal trafficking in Europe.
