Documentarian Jakob Preuss follows one migrant’s passionate and inexhaustible flight to freedom as he makes the journey from Cameroon to Berlin.
Paul Nkamani is a migrant from Cameroon. He has made his way across the Sahara to the Moroccan coast where he now lives in a forest waiting for the right moment to cross the Mediterranean Sea. This is where he meets and befriends Jakob, a filmmaker from Berlin. After Paul manages to cross over to Spain on a rubber boat, he decides to continue on to Germany, forcing Jakob to decide: will he become an active part of Paul’s pursuit of a better life? A fascinating look at the relationship between filmmaker and subject set amidst the ongoing humanitarian refugee crisis
Join us on Tuesday 5 June, 9pm at Palace Electric for an introduction to film by Stefanie Pender, who met protagonist Paul and film maker Jakob Preuss while working in Europe.
