In Between

(Aquí estamos)
Javier Rios | Documentary

2021 | 90 minutes | Spain

Examining the legal and moral dimensions of migrant camps in the Canary Islands, including legislation, health care, and geopolitical factors.


In Between delves into the urgency of migratory crises, focusing on the Canary Route as primary gateway to Europe from Spain. Against the backdrop of COVID-19, the film sheds light on the violation of rights faced by irregular migrants entering Spain.

The documentary confronts overcrowding in the Canary Islands' Arguineguín dock, where over 2,500 migrants gathered in November 2020. It exposes the parallels between the recent surge in arrivals and the cayucos crisis of 2006.

Through expert analysis and firsthand accounts, In Between examines the legal, situational, and moral dimensions of the migrant camps. It scrutinizes immigration legislation, the impact of the pandemic, and broader geopolitical factors.

The documentary urges viewers to confront realities faced by migrants and advocate for systemic change. Aimed at educators seeking to foster understanding among students, In Between offers a vital exploration of one of the most pressing humanitarian crises of our time.
