A Step Without Feet
a film by Lydia Schamschula & Jeremy Glaholt
This is not another refugee film. It's a documentary about the vibrant Syrian culture in Berlin and humanity. Due to misguided stereotypes perpetuated by the media; being labelled a ‘refugee’ tends to carry negative connotations. This negative identity often leads to them feeling isolated.
The purpose of this film is to counter the medias consistent dehumanization of the Syrian asylum seekers. Once you are introduced to the individual, face-to-face, you are reminded of their humanity.
Through universal themes like music, art, family, and friends we are re-introduced to our connection to one another.
