Land in Sight (Land in Sicht)

Persian | Arabic | French | English | German with English subtitles
Abdul, Brian und Farid are stranded in a secluded home for asylum seekers in the small town Belzig in the German region of Brandenburg. Starting from there, they are looking for a way into German society. Their imaginations clash with the local mentality at village fests, in government agencies and night clubs. Instead of evoking consternation, Land in Sight focuses on the unintended humour of those encounters.
(Festival of Migrant Film)
A variety of musical, literary, journalistic &cinematic documents & artworks by artists of different generations present diverse and at times contradictory forms of spectatorship in relation to political events.
Refugees map Berlin based on their experiences: the Afghan urban planner Hamidullah Ehrari, the Syrian merchant Alhadi Aldebs, the Afghan translator Mohammad Yari and the Iranian bioengineer Farhad Ramazanali. The results can be loaded onto smartphones and offer insight into the experience of those who are new to the city.

Entry on donation
Re:fugee:ca x (ILL)LEGAL is a migrant and refugee culture festival. Its main goal is to support our refugee and migrant neighbours and the organisations which help them (such as Refugees Work and Refugee Radio Network and more) through an event in which we can experience the unique and worthwhile talents and abilities these new Berliners bring with them to our city, at the same time giving them a platform to express themselves in their own voice with their own artistic output. Thought of as a fundraiser and solidarity event, profits will be donated to refugee organisations and directly to refugee participants themselves.
