Deutschkurs – The German Course

Nehad Hussein – Director | Sunday 01.11. | 16:00 HS


Andjela, Sami, Filmon, Shahrooz, Ahmad and Viktor take part in a German course. While the teacher is explaining how to express wishes and dreams in German, they are distracted by their thoughts. Andjela has received a letter announcing her deportation. Sami has nightmares about his time in the Iraqi refugee camp. And Filmon is in love…

In the project FilmZuFlucht people from Bremen with and without experience of flight and migration have developed a film together. It tells of their experiences during their flight and in everyday life in Germany. The film was partly based on material shot by the participants in their home country or while fleeing. With the film, they find their own expression for what still weighs on them – and for their wishes and dreams.
