Kwassa Kwassa, 2015. In 2014, Mayotte voted in a referendum to rejoin France, making Mayotte the outermost territory of the European Union. As a result, Mayotte has become a destination for refugees from the neighbouring Comorian island of Anjouan just 70 km away. The film documents the arduous process of constructing fiberglass fishing boats, which are also used to smuggle refugees from Anjouan to Mayotte.
