Dec 4, 2023 | Culture, People, Videos

Art is a powerful tool for integration, even in the most unlikely circumstances. This inspiring and thought-provoking documentary tells the stories of five immigrants who have fled war, persecution, or hardship and found a new home in Germany, where they have enriched the cultural fabric of the country in countless ways.
Through the eyes of Judith Kerr, Aeham Ahmad, Saša Stanišić, Nneka Egbuna, and Antonio Skármeta, we witness the struggles and triumphs of building a new life in a foreign land. From the excitement of escaping Nazi Germany as a child, to the pianist playing music on the rubbles of a Syrian war-torn city, from the challenges of finding a sense of belonging to the joy of contributing to society through art, these immigrant artists share with us their incredible journeys and insights into the meaning of home, identity, and cultural exchange. This film is a testament to the resilience, creativity, and compassion of human beings, and a celebration of the power of art to bring people together.
