Welcome Europa

Welcome Europa

Bruno Ulmer’s haunting, visually poetic portrait of a handful of young immigrants to Europe approaches the subject in a way that is distinctive and ultimately quite devastating. Interweaving the story of several young Kurdish, Moroccan, and Romanian immigrants who come looking for work and a better life, Ulmer reveals a fascinating community of men who move around this Paradise Lost, somehow thinking that the next country will be better than the last. Once hoping to earn enough money to support their families at home, they are left destitute and struggle to survive – sleeping in boxes and abandoned cars, dealing with the police and discrimination, and falling into drugs and even prostitution. (John Nein)
