Vienna, Austria. A doctor´s office, two young men, patients; the doctor introduces his daughter, Kurdwin, who is planning a reportage on him and Kurdistan. Thus begins a complex, soft melodrama with home video moments: a family and its transnational economizing of feelings in the interaction with powerful militant conflicts.
THE STORIES BEHIND THE NUMBERS
In the headlines, migration is presented through numbers, figures and geopolitical considerations, while personal stories are forgotten. GLOBAL NOMADS curates 17 European films that give a face to the refugee crisis and focus on the stories behind the numbers. Thanks to this project, the films will be promoted to audiences worldwide and distributed on all major VOD platforms on 20 June 2017 – World Refugee Day.
