Immigration issues

OUT NOW! FERNES LAND is a convincing look at how Germany treats its immigrant population.

Two young men from diametrically opposed corners of German society meet when quietly resigned insurance broker Mark runs down illegal immigrant Haroon with his car, signalling the beginning of an odyssey across night-time Leipzig that challenges not only the limitations of Mark’s comfortable and familiar horizons but our own conceptions of what it means to be an immigrant in Germany. Negotiating the grey zones between order and chaos, Sethi paints a convincing picture of life without papers, without dignity, without hope

Fernes Land | Directed by Kanwal Sethi (Germany, 2011) with Atta Yaqub, Christoph Franken. Starts February 2
