How many people are forced to be collateral damage in a system where the odds are against them? 

In a world built on questionable foundations of bureaucracy, people are failed daily by the laws and institutions supposedly there to order our world in fair and equitable ways. 

Looking to a world of perpetual crises, from migrants at the Turkish border to the police’s mistreatment of detainees with mental health issues closer to home, these non-fiction works articulate a failed system, and those who suffer for it.

Programmed by Miranda Mungai. 71'

This programme contains descriptions of mental breakdowns and physical abuse by police.
