›Beyond a place‹, Johanna Bröckel & Nicola Schwartz, 2023

The 12-minute documentary by Nicola Schwartz about a community project in Berlin raises the question of what it takes to promote an inclusive society. In interviews, people of different backgrounds share what home means to them and the impact the community has on their lives.

Alongside these emotive narratives, the film moves from the private to the public sphere, from the individual to the collective. The documentary touches on themes such as life in exile, urban participation, and refugees’ integration experiences in Europe, offering an optimistic perspective on collective care and the power of play in building communities.

Following the film, there will be an opportunity to talk with producer Johanna Brockel.

A project within the framework of the Alliance of International Production Houses by the Federal Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
