ONLY HUMAN II - The second part of our documentary series ONLY HUMAN is done and the 1st part has successfully ended its international festival tour. "Only Human" brings young people from different backgrounds together. The focus is on their experiences with discrimination and racism as well as of cooperation across political and social borders. The second part of this series throws oppressive highlights on the harrowing experiences with (sexual) violence, racism, depression and bullying that some of these young people had to go through. In touching pictures, however, it also shows how friendship and tolerance can help to heal wounds. Despite the depressing themes, the film has a hopeful message.

ONLY HUMAN - by Katerina Giannakopoulou

LOGLINE

 

Ten people – ten cultures – ten destinies – one project. Art overcomes borders.

 In the first part of the documentary series, the participants of the “Only human” project tell touching stories about their flight, their arrival and life in Germany, their difficulties, hopes and encounters. When Germany opened its borders to refugees six years ago, the non-profit association “music4everybody! e.V.” started an integrative musical project with the aim of making it easier for young people with a refugee and migration background to arrive in Germany. Together with young local people and under the guidance of professional coaches, they build bridges between people of different cultures through art. Only Human is a journey that brings people together in a learning and healing process through dancing, singing, acting, and creating. The project creates a space where we can be free, independent of everything society imposes on us.
