Screaming Silence

23. April 14:30h until 16:30h at Kino 2

What to do when you have to stay still? When the decision is taken away from you? In this film block, all those who are otherwise deprived of their voice have their say. In various forms, they tell their own experiences and find strength by bringing their conflicts out into the open, by shouting them out into the world.
