Welcome Europa

Welcome Europa

Bruno Ulmer, Francë, 2006Beta SP, Colour, 90'

How many young illegal immigrants roam the streets of big European cities, looking for a job, a stroke of good fortune or the right contact? “Welcome Europa” introduces us to some Kurdish, Moroccan and Romanian young men trying to find their way in Paris, Amsterdam, and other cities. Without a residence permit and deprived of help – except for a sporadic shower and a hot meal – these guys are on their own. These are not adventurers, but men who fled their countries for political reasons or whose poverty forced them to leave their families and support them from abroad.
