Feature Films

     
A foggy landscape with new buildings in Eisenhüttenstadt at the German-Polish border: „Eisen“, Iron, that’s how they call the town here. Portraits of asylum seekers from all over the world are set among impressions of a dreary life in a strictly composed sequence of images.  

A snapshot of a life on hold, somewhere in between hope and uncertainty.
