The short film idea HÄNSEL&GRETEL – DONT LET FEAR EAT YOU was born, cause more and more right wing and fear is rising.
We as filmmakers from different countries bond against hatred and stand for a community of joy, light, love, the healing power of imagination and phantasy.
In November 2016 a treasure has fallen in my hands, who wants to come to light.
In an emergency shelter had been up to 80 refugee children based age 3 to 15, from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Jemen, Bosnia, Russia, Somalia.
The children are utmost open and despite their horrible traumatic journey, full of light and wild joyful energy.
Their vibrant will to life, is as much overwhelming as the view into their deep eyes touching and full of poetic beauty.
It is important to move from “refugees“ directly to young humans called Hassan, Fatima, Mohammed, Hania, Ilaf, Abufasi, Maryam, Rida, Ruwait, Nawas, Bahara and Hawa.
