Sana Ghobbeh, Silvia Amancei, Bogdan Armanu (Iran) – Crisis at the Baltic Sea, 2015, 5:18
A happy German couple gets informed that a bomb just arrived in their city. They decide to save their world so, in the end, they use bureaucracy offered by the state against the bomb/immigrant.
Statement: Western societies continuously close borders for the others, the foreigners, the immigrants and the refugees. Hypocritically declaring their desire to treat everybody as equals while they build an image of the foreigner as a threat to the western world. In this short film we try to shed lights on this issue in a humorous way.
