They are called Robel, Germay, Filmon and Halefom, they come from Eritrea and have been captured, ransomed, tortured and they have survived the Sinai torture camps. Through their words, in the intimacy of their rooms, the film draws their long trip through barbarism, an experience that has left traces on each of the boys’ body and soul. From Cairo to Stockholm,
wherever he founds a shelter, every survivor experiences a nightmarish mental exile that “Under the Skin” explores carefully. Delphine Deloget and Cécile Allegra just won France’s major journalistic prize, the Albert Londres, for this long feature documentary on human trafficking in Sinai.
