I am Wounded (Germany)

by Orkan Bayram

Aram and Mihemed are two teenage brothers who struggle to earn a living through collecting recycling paper for the family. Their father lost a leg in a terrorist attack while working for the American army. The boys cruise the streets and highways of the now blossoming city of Hewlêr (Arbil) in Kurdistan, Iraq. Depicting their everyday struggle to make ends meet interjected with snapshots from the “men’s world”, the camera is a bystander in the plight of these wounded men – men, these boys are to become. Running time: 00:28:02

Fatima - A short life (Germany)

by Hakim El Hachoumi

The film discloses the inconceivability of a tragedy: A 14-year old Moroccan girl, Fatima Osaadan, dies from maltreatment suffered at the hands of the family she was working for as a "petite bonne" (housemaid). The film enters into the background of a cruel murder and gives an insight into Moroccan society from two opposing perspectives: the archaic, penurious world from which the young servants come and world of the urban social climbers. Running time: 01:20:00
