An essay relying on a remarkably complex and efficient montage – in a mock random format, this film takes us on a journey through the fragmented identity of a ceaselessly displaced Europe. From Nigerian asylum seekers in Sicily to drunken nationalists in Vienna and an Arab musician in Galilee, Ruth Beckermann composes a stream of consciousness that is as personal as it is profound.
