Today is World Refugee Day. Needless to say that it is a very important day: the number of people fleeing war, violence and persecution has never been so high.  The short A Man Falls from the Sky touches the fear that exists around refugees and makes you think about your own behavior. For example, what would you do if a man falls from the sky?

Since 2001 World Refugee Day is held every year on June 20th. On this day the strength, courage and perseverance of millions of refugees is being commoderated. This worldwide problem is again on top of mind because of the rescue action whereby more than 600 migrants were refused by Italy and Malta. After nine days of sailig the rescue ship was finally accepted by the coast guards of Valencia.

Back to the film: We see Ton and Ineke enjoy their warm afternoon soup when a man crashes down from the sky, in their garden. Ton sees a dangerous species lying in his garden, Ineke wants to help. The situation escalates completely and the couple will soon find out who their other half really is. Hopefully before it’s too late…
