Stateless

4 minutes

Ten million people around the world are stateless. Is citizenship a human right?

Some 10 million people worldwide are ‘stateless’ – unrecognised as residents of any nation. This short documentary chronicles the struggle of one such person, ‘Steven’, who left his native Mozambique to seek asylum in the United Kingdom but was refused. He has since been in limbo, an invisible person without nationality, and his statelessness has made everything from renting a flat to visiting his daughter impossible.
