XXX. 2015 Black International Cinema Berlin

The focus of this "tale" is the highly contested EU Agency entitled FRONTEX – which we would rather become FRONT-ex. The film portrays the motivation that forces human beings to leave their homes, the problems they meet on their way to Europe and at the border – caused mainly by European politics.

XXX. 2015 Black International Cinema Berlin

Der Fokus dieses "Märchens" liegt auf der höchst umstrittenen EU-Agentur FRONTEX – die wir lieber zu FRONT-ex werden ließen. Wir sprechen über die Gründe, die Menschen dazu zwingen, ihre Heimat zu verlassen, die Probleme, die ihnen auf ihrem Weg nach Europa und an der Grenze begegnen – hauptsächlich durch europäische Politik verursacht.
