We’ve been documenting the ambitious journey of songwriter and filmmaker JIM KROFT multiple times in the past. He travelled to the refugee camps of Lesvos earlier this year and later started a crowdfunding campaign, resulting in the 48 hours recording session of his new album. That record, Journeys #3, will now officially be released on July 15 and today, Mr. KROFT has shared a video for the lead single Shadowland. It gives honest insights into his time on the island and he states:
‘What struck me most during the months shooting my documentary on the refugee crisis were the daily moments of laughter, magic and human connection. It was out of these bonds formed, that the lyrics to Shadowlands were written. My thoughts were that beyond razor fences, armed police, and political rhetoric, the refugee crisis is about people. When cutting the video, I had the simple idea to bring forth the human aspect of this crisis. It is these moments, shared between refugee, locals, aid workers and volunteers that live with me. The video is a dedication to all the kindness, hope and lessons I received from so many people on my journey. And to the courage of humans.’
