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.
The 2014-2015 season of Visions du Réel On Tour is launched in German-speaking Switzerland thanks to the generous support of La Mobilière.
The Fondation Ernst Göhner also supports the Visions du Réel On Tour project since its beginnings in 2012.
