ViennAthens 2020 – Diskussion über Flucht und Migration

Original language German/ Greek
Subtitles: English, German, Greek
The film “ViennAthens 2020 – Diskussion über Flucht und Migration” is aiming to raise awareness about the challenges that migrants and refugees are facing, discussing issues like human rights, racism, and policies in Europe. In the framework of the festival “ViennAthens 19 – Eden is west?” film screenings, lectures, and round table discussions took place having as main theme migration and environment.

ViennAthens was founded to become an intercultural bridge in Europe having as a goal to embrace diversity and recognize differences and similarities as equally valuable in the common European home. ViennAthens, reflecting one of the main routes of refuge, connects two cultural centers: on the one hand, Vienna is a place of high quality of life, economically strong, with a particularly rich cultural environment and unbroken cultural and artistic creativity. On the other hand, Athens is the cradle of western culture and the birthplace of democracy.

Many thanks to our friends from Vienna and Linz for their sponsorship!

    Hey Simos,
    Thank you and Christos for this film.
    I also believe that giving refugees a face will help. But the fear that is being fed to a lot of the European residents is strong.
    What Dr. Kardamakis say’s is often what people here tend to say many refugees and immigrants don’t have. Respect for the country where they are living now.
    What i find difficult is that these people speak in very difficult and abstract language. It doesn’t connect them with the communities that are supposed to take in the refugees.

    Sehr wichtiges Thema. Gut, dass das hier angesprochen wurde. Es stecken ja viele unangenehme Wahrheiten darin.
