Official website

It Will Be Chaos unfurls between Italy and the Balkan corridor against a background of the darkest European migrant crisis since World War II. Five years in the making, the cinema verité documentary tracks two refugee stories — that of Aregai, an Eritrean shipwreck survivor fleeing his country’s dictatorship, and that of Wael, who is about to embark on a life-threatening expedition to bring his Syrian wife and four children to safety in Germany. The film captures the mounting tensions between the newcomers and locals. It Will Be Chaos received a 2019 Emmy Award for best current affairs documentary. (Lorena Luciano and Filippo Piscopo, 2019, 93 minutes) Special thanks to HBO Documentary Films.
