The video THE GAME tells of the life and survival of people with migration experiences and uses aesthetic mechanisms of gaming. A smartphone depicts escape routes from the perspective of a young Afghan. The device acts like a console and is reminiscent of a virtual game. In a sensitive way, the protagonist reports on different forms of escape as well as pushbacks that he personally experienced. A subtle mood of threat and tension accompanies his narrative.
