In 2013, 11,600 asylum seekers, most of them Syrians, arrived in Bulgaria, one of the poorest countries of the European Union. The Swiss filmmaker Eileen Hofer brought food and useful items (donated by friends and family) to refugees in Sofia. This is how she briefly met Berivan and improvised the film in less than an hour.
Take a few minutes to meet Berivan and please share her story with all your friends and raise your voice against xenophobia and in favour of a European society in solidarity.
This is an initiative of European film festivals fighting against xenophobia in Europe. European film festivals thank Eileen for providing her film to spread the word against xenophobia.
