Vol Spécial (Special Flight)
Fernand Melgar, 2011, 100 min.
French w/ English subtitles

Each year, thousands of men and women in Switzerland
are imprisoned without trial or sentence. Simply
because they stay in the country illegally, they may
be deprived of liberty for up to eighteen months
before being deported. Filmmaker Fernand Melgar
immersed himself for 9 months in the administrative
detention centre Frambois in Geneva, one of the 28
deportation centers for the paperless in Switzerland,
many of whom have been established in Switzerland for
years. From Jeton, a Kosovo Roma refugee, to Serge
from Congo, they pay their social insurance
contributions and send their children to school
until the day the immigration authorities arbitrarily
decide to imprison them to ensure their departure.
The problem is that no inmate is willing to leave the
country voluntarily. Thus begins a relentless
administrative procedure to force them to leave.

Followed by reception with live musical performances
by Lyke Mike, Isaac Katalay, and Rafiya.
