The documentary "Mission Lifeline (Die Mission der Lifeline, Germany, 2019)" gives an insight into the everyday life and struggles of NGOs standing up for saving people's lives in the Mediterranean Sea. For two years, film director Markus Weinberg and his crew accompanied the team of the Dresden-based sea and rescue NGO “Mission Lifeline”, even onto the ship just off the Libyan coast where the struggle to save lives ultimately turns into a fight for the European idea.


The original film languages are German, English and Spanish (English subtitles).

The running time is 67 minutes.

After the screening, we are looking forward to a discussion with film director Markus Weinberg and Member of the European Parliament Erik Marquardt.
