Interview with Khadim Dai, a young filmmaker from Pakistan. 1. What is your video about? It has been 16 long years for me as a refugee, without identity and deprived of some of my basic rights. I was only two when my father left Afghanistan because Taliban were massacring Hazaras (our ethnicity). When I grew up, I learned that Hazaras have been facing persecution since centuries. In Pakistan, four of my close friends were killed in violent incidents, which is why I decided...

Interview with Ahmad Albakri, a young filmmaker from Palestine. 1. What is your video about? My film tells my personal story of defining freedom, a concept that is still obscure for over four million Palestinians living under the Israeli occupation. The story projects a surrealistic approach to showcase Northern Cyprus as an example to realize how simple surroundings can always connect Palestinians to the confinement of their reality. It is mainly a projection of an intense...

Interview with Kay Lee, a young filmmaker from Australia/France. 1. What is your video about? My film, "Fruit Salad" is a metaphor representing the plurality of people in the world. The more types of fruit, the greater the salad. It is a video that underscores the importance of integration and values of acceptance. That the world can be a lot "healthier" if it works towards this goal. I was motivated to create it as a result of my experiences in Europe. I came to the real...

It's about an eight-year-old girl that discovers through her friend Zamni, that in spite of their diverse ethnical and cultural backgrounds, they have a lot of things in common.

Interview with Julia Khun, whose film "Somewhere to Belong" won the PLURAL+ SIGNIS Award. 1. What is your video about? The movie is about Kenji, who's Japanese but grows up in Germany. However his different looks and cultural background makes it difficult to integrate. Only when he's training he feels like he belongs. Parkour is a young movement. In this sport it doesn't matter where you come from, everybody is the same. You want to be strong to be useful, not to be better th...


1. What is your video about? The short documentary is about a young person Pema with a physical disability – the disability does not allow Pema to use his hands.

Nevertheless, he never gave up and developed skills using his two feet, replacing his hands, with the support of his grandparents and childhood friends. As he grew up listening to the radio, he came to...

Interview with Kayf Abdulqadir, a young filmmaker from Canada. Her video “3 Things You Should Know About My Hijab” is a recipient of an award in this year's PLURAL+ festival. 1. What is your video about? We decided to do a film about the most common questions that most hijabi's get and wanted to film it in a way that would showcase our personalities. So we went with a more quirky approach. Most of the time we are perceived in a negative light, and by “we” I mea...
