Andreas Koefoed, 2015, Documentary, 58 minutes Arabic, Chechen, Danish.
Ali is scared by his nightmares. His classmate, Magomed, is coping quietly with the prospect of his father’s deportation. These are the everyday concerns at the Red Cross school for refugee children in Denmark, where kids from across the world study whilst awaiting the outcomes of their asylum claims. Multi-award winning filmmaker Andreas Koefoed intimately portrays ordinary children in extraordinary circumstances. Stunning cinematography and an unobtrusive sensibility allow the students' resilience and their teachers' empathy to take centre stage.
Presented alongside two short films by Duco Tellegen.
