I HAVE A HEAD, HAVE FEET TOO …
Cinema Documentary | DE (2008) | 84min
“I am ambitious, I learn until I’m dead. I try, word by word. Maybe it takes long time, but I’m learning. Why not? I’m like other people, I also have a head, I have feet too. “
Eight migrants from different backgrounds all participants of a German course in Berlin Wedding span their very personal life arc, which ranges from their childhood to the specific situations in which they live today. Searching for words, struggling with each phrase, yet always finding individual word creations or language pictures. If these do not help, it is gestures and looks that make descriptions, touching and beautiful.
What are they talking about? About life, love, displacement, the desire to arrive here, finally.
