Europa

Directed by Haider Rashid

KAMAL, a young Iraqi man entering Europe on foot through the border between Turkey and Bulgaria, is captured by Bulgarian border police but escapes, finding himself to search for a way out in a seemingly interminable forest, an underworld where rules and laws don’t exist, where he is wounded and chased by Bulgarian MIGRANT HUNTERS. For three days and three nights Kamal must fight for his life through a journey of survival until a final life-or-death confrontation.

It's About to Rain

It’s About to Rain tells a universal story about immigrants facing expulsion from a country where they have lived for decades.Said (Lorenzo Baglioni), born and raised in Italy by Algerian parents, is a typical student. He works part-time as a baker, has a beautiful girlfriend, and loves football. When his father loses his job, the family is unable to renew their residency visa as they have done for the past 30 years, and they receive a letter of expulsion. Said, who considers himself entirely Italian, is told to “go home” to Algeria, a country he has never even visited. While his brother hides out, Said decides to use the press and legal system to battle bureaucracy.
