Sažetak
The article suggests that there are several points of convergence between Mary Shelley's idea of monstrosity and Elke Sasse's documentaries My Escape 1 and 2, the series that won the Prix Europa in October 2016. First, both narratives use confession as a tool for authenticating human experience. Second, they deal with monstrosity and the ensuing emotions of fear, despair, helplessness, disorientation and hatred. As much as the Frankenstein monster can be seen as the product of the emerging capitalist society and thus the embodiment of the masses, the immigrants fleeing to Europe can be described as 'the abject' (Kristeva's term) - something that disturbs European borders and the Western sense of order, system and identity.
