In Focus: ON TRACKS - Refugees & Migration


9 films deal with one of the globally most urgent topics of our times. ON TRACKS-REFUGEES AND MIGRATION draws a eclectic picture of people’s current reasons for migration, their search for safety and for a chance of a new beginning. These films let us experience what it means to be a refugee from the point of view of the people that are affected most, as well as the perspective of human smugglers and neutral observers. We encounter the living conditions of those stranded at the gates of Europe and Australia and explore the phenomenon of borders by example of the US and Mexico. In addition, we see how integration politics can succeed and how the coming together of people of different origins can be enriching for all. These films contribute to a diversity of perspectives of people in movement, a cultural building of bridges and the overcoming of prejudiced points of view.
