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...

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...

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...

Our tutors are paid but they give no lessons, some of them no longer study or research their own subjects. Candidates of external exams...

Laying on a wall at the management center for the Ebola response in Port Loko, Sierra Leone, David* says he feels gloomy.

It took them an entire day to come back from Kenema, and it will take them again two hours to go to their village. Waiting patiently for transportation, David starts telling the story, the one of a f...
