EVDEKI SES - 22m² Österreich

EVDEKI SES - 22m² Österreich

When the first so-called guest workers came to Austria from Turkey over forty years ago, their wives and families gradually followed. Three women, representative for many, speak out in this film, talking quite bluntly about the ups and downs of their arrival in Upper Austria and the following – often extremely hard – years that followed. They talk about arranged marriages, partnership, and family life marked by inadequate language abilities, isolation, and working life. They all wanted to stay only a few years in Austria. Yet in the end they stayed – usually for the sake of the children who grew up between the cultures.

Ufuk Serbest, geboren 1979 in Linz, hat ein besonderes Interesse, gesellschaftliche Spannungsfelder künstlerisch darzustellen.
