The Land In Between

14.01.2014 18.00 Finissage + Filmscreening
„Im Land Dazwischen“/“The Land In Between“ (English subtitles)

The finissage offers the last opportunity to visit, have a drink and discuss about the exhibition. We will also be showing the documentary „The Land in Between“ of the Frankfurt-based filmmaker Melanie Gärtner, who will be present for an exchange after the screening. “The Land In Between” follows the stories of the three protagonists Blade Cyrille (Cameroon), Sekou (Mali) and Babu (India). On their way to Europe they find themselves in a place from which they can move neither forward nor backwards. In Ceuta, a Spanish exclave on the Northern coast of Morocco, they are so close. But the Fortress Europe is shutting down its frontiers. Does this mean their dreams of Europe are really over? The documentary accompanies the young men in their everyday life and records their attempts to deal with the situation … and to get out.
