This window to the best of the movies about this interesting and actual issue, that cross not only Europe-Middle East-Africa, but also different regions with migrations (international and internal, Natives of the USA and Canada, etc.), racism in Trinidad and Tobago against Venezuelans, the Armenian Genocide, past and current migrations because old wars, like in Vietnam and Cambodia, discrimination in between neighbors in Berlin, persecutions in North Korea, and beautiful and poetic movies that go beyond the issue of migration to the condition of the Human Being, upcoming wars (¿?) in Northern Europe, Worker Class Solidarity that cross the Atlantic, etc., will permit here, in Berlin, empathize with millions and millions of Humans that exist, and not only in the queue of Ausländerbehörde.
We hope that the second edition of the Refugees Film Festival could help to understand, through the cinema, this complex reality that is going on in the entire world.
