One hundred days aboard rescue vessels in the Central Mediterranean. Nine journeys between Greece and the Balkans to tell the greatest human tragedy of our times. “Ants” tells the lives of people moving along the routes that take them to Europe, in pursuit of a better future – like ants, as in Steinbeck’s “The Grapes of Wrath”. “Ants” tells these stories, giving a name and a face to their unwilling protagonists. “Ants” stems from a limbo, from the tragic stories of those who play with their lives in a game that represents the only hope for a new life.
