Rare are the days when our newspapers are not headlined by the desperate plight of refugees forced to cross the sea from Turkey in search of safety in the European Union. The Greek island of Lesbos, long a popular holiday spot for European tourists, has been receiving thousands of people every day. Their arrival has, however, caused concern that holiday makers will choose to go elsewhere. A project by film makers Philip Brink and Marieke van der Velden offers a moving challenge to this view. They invited tourists and refugees to speak about life while sitting on a bench overlooking the sea. The result is "an ode to humanism and shows what happens when we take time to sit down and talk with each other in stead of about each other."
