Will my parents come to see me

Short Film, AT/DE/SO 2022, digital, 28 min, OmeU
Program: Kurzspielfilm Programm 5

An officer accompanies a young man, Farah, through the procedures of Somalian law enforcement. The officer’s expression remains unmoved: routine guards against empathy. In the deliberate conversations smolder issues of care and justice. Farah has been convicted of terrorism. Under the watchful eyes of the officer, the prisoner awaits a visitor—and compassion.
