channel hopping

A key theme in climate-change stories will be illegal refugees, or l'immigration clandestine.

Today's Liberation devotes several pages to Philippe Lioret's new movie, Welcome, about a young Iraqi refugee, and the Calais swimming instructor who tries to help him cross the channel to England.

The paper links this movie to a genre that includes Costa-Gavras's Eden a L'Ouest, Ken Loach's It's A Free World and Inarritu's Babel.
