Queer Exodus: no one leaves home unless home is the mouth of a shark

Sam Albatros – Director | Thursday 30.09. | 18:00 HS


Sam Albatros spoke to queer individuals with a refugee/immigration background from all over the world, individuals now residing in the Berlin area. Using footage from their everyday life, Sam created these visual stories as a love letter to queer survival & the individuals’ relationship with their countries, families and the world. Had they remained in their country of origin, their lives would have been in danger. This is an homage to not dying.
