Project Description

Would you leave home?

Folks Abroad

Would you set off and leave home for searching your fortune in the big, wide world? Or did you actually already do? People from various generations and countries tell their very different stories of immigration and emigration. The video was shot on a small passenger ferry crossing the Weser River in Bremen.
