"They don't want to see guys like me" - a film about diversity in theatre

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.

World opening - music and the next generation

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?

Sindelfingen city of culture - diversity comes of age

Sindelfingen is one of Germany's most diverse cities, with three-quarters of its children and young people having at least one parent or grandparent who has immigrated. Members of the hip-hop band FamGang set out to find out what this means for the city's youth culture and in what direction the journey must go so that what already distinguishes youth culture can also enrich adult culture.

Culture and diversity - a German journey

All the nightmares of conservative parties are becoming true: In more than fifty German cities more than half of the children and youth have a "migration background". But what does that actually mean, when the vast majority of these children and youth grew up in Germany? And vice versa: what stories does culture actually tell us about this new everyday German life? Let's check this up in three German cities, that could not be more different...

This is an edited and shortened compilation of the three other films.
