The Europeans | Are We Europe

This is one episode from a series presenting eight portraits of young people in Europe, available as audio and animated video podcast. The episode focuses on Mohamed from Guinea, who has made it to Amsterdam in a dramatic odyssey and is now waiting for a decision on his asylum application. Mohamed has no papers and suffers under a bureaucratic system bent on rejection. He tells of his flight, his arrival, his longing to find a permanent new home in Europe.

Excerpt from the jury’s statement
“Both the insightful interview and the nothing short of magical visuals make accessible, especially for a young audience, an exceedingly tough subject. The wonderful, intricate and imaginative graphics give rhythm and pace to Mohamed’s narrative. Alongside the brutal reality of a refugee’s fate, the associative dramaturgy vividly brings to the fore the protagonist’s thoughts, feelings and longings.”
