GRAMNet/BEMIS Film Series
Beyond Borders: Stories of Freedom and Friendship

Wed 17 April 2019

Films for refugee children, for their friends and for everyone else. This creative documentary (episode film) without dialogues takes the viewer on a journey into children's worlds of different countries, real and dreamed. Ola befriends a giant, a boy from Jordan learns to laugh again, a magnifying glass leads us into a dream world and creates a new friendship, Jumana longs for their homeland and simply turns Germany upside down over and over again. In these cinematic miniatures, which were designed by filmmakers from countries such as Syria, Iran, Jordan, Germany and Colombia, the whole emotional range of refugee children is renegotiated.
