Zweite Zukunft

A Film by Abdullah Rajab Almalla

Synopsis

SECOND FUTURE.
War, escape, loss and a new life in Germany that poses constantly changing challenges This is what life is like for Amir, a Syrian refugee who is trying to get a second chance to find peace and security in Germany. A small film company gives him the opportunity to demonstrate his filming skills. Easier said than done – in Germany you need a certificate to prove that you are a real film producer. This is not the case in Syria. Amir doesn’t have much time to convince his boss that he is talented. Within a few days he has to finish a challenging film project. Supported by his colleague Micha, he sets to work immediately. Painful memories of his past haunt him during his work and he has to cope with people who don’t wish him well. However, he doesn’t give up.

    My name is Abdullah Rajab Almalla, born in Aleppo, Syria, in 1989. In Syria, I graduated Almanon High School and began to study archeology at the University of Aleppo. I have been living in Germany since 2015 as a recognized refugee and am currently training to be a media designer at SWR in Baden-Baden. My passion is the realization of creative ideas. My focus lies in the work before and behind the camera, from online-spots to documentaries and movies.
