Baher of Finland
What happens, when you ask for asylum based on your sexual orientation in Finland? This film follows the ordeals and procedures newcomers from the LGBT-community have to face while starting a new life in the Scandinavian country.
Thin Green Line + Q&A
The Green Line is what locals call the unsettled ceasefire line dividing Cyprus into the Greek-speaking Republic of Cyprus in the south and the Turkish-speaking non-government controlled area in the north. This film narrates three real life love stories between Greek-Cypriots and Turkish-Cypriot, showing the hardships and discrimination all couples face and the many differences and taboos that both divide and unite these people.
