****Live Presentation of Personal Recordings by Queer Refugees****

Free entrance

Kijufi – Landesverband Kinder- und Jugendfilm Berlin e.V., in collaboration with Stichting art. 1, are proud to present QUEER FACES, MIGRANT VOICES, the original radio works of queer refugees from around the globe who now call Germany or the Netherlands home. The personal stories of love, hope, trials and flight were entirely written, recorded and edited by the participants during several workshops.

The presentations will be followed by the Berlin premiere of the film ‚Mr. Gay Syria‘, and the short film ‚Scar Tissue‘ from 18:00-20:00
Mr. Gay Syria (Berlin Premiere) (€7.50)

QUEER FACES MIGRANT VOICES is a German-Dutch cooperation project for young lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans * and/or intersex (LGBTI *) refugees who have recently come to Germany or the Netherlands. Many of them have fled discrimination, war or lack of prospects and have decided to leave their homes to find a better life elsewhere. The project is for those who question their sexual identity, sometimes because of education, sometimes because of religious or other reasons. In addition to this inner disruption, they are confronted with a completely new environment: a new country, a different language, different customs and habits. Thus young LGBTI refugees in particular are exposed to an identity crisis in two ways and often question themselves and/or their surroundings.

The project gives these people the space and voice to deal with their cultural, sexual and religious identity. Coaches help participants with technical and personal questions: Where is my home? Is this the land I was born in but had to flee, or is this new land my home? What role do I play, what is my origin? What power do I have over my future? These questions become stories that bring participants together in a narrative mosaic.
