Inter­connected Separations

21. April 15:00h until 17:00h at Kino 2

Refuge is an eternal constant throughout the history of humankind. People leave their homeland for the most diverse reasons: Fear of survival, war, persecution. Always with one goal: a better future. Our film block “Interconnected Separations” tells stories of connection and division, of escape and arrival – and about the journey not being over, even at the destination.

Shapes of Lesbos

Shapes of Lesbos

Thousands of people remain in the refugee camp on the Greek island of Lesbos. War drove them from their homes and hope to Moria. For some it is a transit station, for others a dead end – but it can’t be a home to anyone. This film tells the stories of the refugees, Lesbos residents and Doctors Without Borders.
