Further informations

Director Yüksel, from the third generation of Turkish immigrants, draws a portrait of the “pioneers of the first hour”. Seven protagonists, in parallel stories, speak about their lives in the Federal Republic from the 1960s and 1970s up to the present. Perseverance and optimism characterize these narratives of a generation that has more to say than has been listened to so far.

Excerpt from the jury’s statement
Impressive insights into the everyday reality of life of the first generation of immigrants. The protagonists are endearingly close and tell their stories with humor and a sharp eye for revealing details. Problems and hardship are not suppressed but balanced by an engaging and sensitive portrayal.
