(English subtitles are available at the settings Vektor-Zahnrad-Symbol - Download Kostenlos Vector, Clipart Graphics ...)

 

The film deals with the question of why so little has yet arrived in Germany's municipal and state theatres from the new demographic diversity after decades of immigration. Based on the career of the Hamburg actor Altamasch Noor, it becomes clear what institutional mechanisms are at work here, but also what changes the theatre and film world are facing.

The film accompanies the violinist Yara Abou Fakher, a refugee from Syria, from the Banda Comunale to two music projects in Dresden that aim to enable children to experience cultural diversity and learn how much fun cosmopolitanism can be. The film title picks up on the slogan "Weltoffenes Dresden" (Open-minded Dresden), which stands for a civil society association that counters right-wing discourse and racism in Dresden. But how does openness to the world come about when even children are exposed to right-wing ideas and the migration society is becoming a social reality more and more quickly, but is still only experienced by a minority in everyday life?
