Film Screening Programme:
Refika, Özge Deniz Özker, Greece/Turkey, 11.18’, documentary “Hearing different versions of the story about Refika and her love Nazmi, Ozge Deniz tries to find out which version is the real one. Who is the woman in the photograph? Who is Refika? Who writes history?”
The land in front, Fabrizio Lecce, Italy, 29’ documentary
Two travel stories, a search of the future and the other in search of the past between the cultural roots of their identity.
Di Là, Giulio Tonincelli, Italy/Albania, 8’, documentary
Travelling is a luxury only for those who own a passport, a good passport, with which they can move around the globe with little economic efforts. For other people, who do not own a certain passport or a visa, this luxury is a desperate need, and a risky one.
In the Land of Oranges, Nadir Mauge, Palestine/Israel, 14.44’, documentary
From Jaffa to Bethlehem, Palestine
An attempt to remind us of the past and reconnect with the life they once knew.
Feeling of a Home, Io Chaviara & Michalis Kastanidis, Greece, 26’, documentary
Instead of waiting passively for the border to open, they exist in the present, they envision the future and they create conditions that bring them closer to a feeling of a home.
The link that connects the presented films, both to one another, and to the exhibition of Outcast Europe, is the voyage. The memories and experiences of migration are presented in a creative and exploratory way, like the skin that unravels itself between the past and the present. You can see all exhibition updates at Outcast Europe Exhibition Event.
The curated programme is a selection of shorts from the competition programme of the Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival. The festival has a unique itinerary character, organized in different country/city every year highlighting the various societal dynamics and serving as a cinematic-networking hub that enables open dialogue and experience exchanging among creators and audience.
