LA PEUR DOIT CHANGER DE CAMP

Lydia from Berlin and Lydia from Bejaia meet in the transit area of Paris airport. There is a cold atmosphere of fear. Each sound is perceived as a threat. It is not simply the fear of being the victim of the next bomb, it is also the uncertainty about the absolute arbitrariness of the current violence. Today everyone can be the victim of any attack. The stories of the two women reflect parts of the historical developments in Europe, especially in East Germany, and North Africa, especially in Algeria, which have contributed to this atmosphere.

German Premiere 2nd of February 2018 at TAK Kreuzberg (in German, Arabic and French with surtitles)
