[Message from the organizers at Cinema Politica: “Few films have affected us in the way VOL SPÉCIAL has – the images of men detained for months without rights or recourse, in that infamously “liberal” country, Switzerland, is haunting and will send chills down the spine for long after viewing. Join us Monday for this special screening, with guest speakers who will connect the film to local issues as well as ways to get involved.”]

SYNOPSIS: Each year, thousands of men and women in Switzerland are imprisoned without trial or sentence. Simply because they stay in the country illegally, they may be deprived of liberty for up to eighteen months before being deported.

Chaque année en Suisse, des milliers d’hommes et de femmes sont emprisonnés sans procès ni condamnation. Pour la seule raison qu’ils résident illégalement sur le territoire, ils peuvent être privés de liberté pendant 18 mois dans l’attente de leur expulsion.
