In 1991, two years after the fall of the Berlin Wall and during the 30th anniversary of the guest worker treaty between Turkey and Germany, Turkish filmmaker Can Candan interviewed members of Berlin’s Turkish community, the largest minority living in post-wall Berlin, about their experiences of the German reunification. This trilingual documentary explores larger issues in this new Germany such as migration, guest-workers, cultural identity, belonging and xenophobia. In this film, Turkish immigrants of all ages talk about their past, present, and possible future in a united Germany and how increasing hostilities and right-wing violence affect their sense of belonging and their label of being “foreign. In Turkish, German and English with English subtitles. *** In Person: Can Candan.
