Immigration documentaries showing the reality of migrant life

Immigration documentaries on RTD expose one of the hot-button issues of modern politics across Europe, the US and beyond. RTD explores the 2015 refugee crisis in Europe, migrant caravans heading to the US border, the Rohingya crisis in Bangladesh, the Calais ‘jungle’ refugee camp, and more.

Deaths in the Mediterranean
Hundreds of migrants die or go missing while crossing the Mediterranean each year.

In RTD documentaries, migrants share stories of persecution, poverty and conflict that forces them to leave their home and offer a glimpse of life on the move and the associated hardship. We hear from residents who don’t want newcomers on their soil and talk to humanitarians helping migrants.
