In Our Country

The internationally critically acclaimed short film „In Our Country“ from Louisa Wagener and Saskia Hahn tells the story of the nineteen year old Eritrean refugee Teklebrhan who survived his journey through the Libyan desert. In Germany he has a hard time adapting to his new life. He joins a rural soccer team in Bavaria where he befriends the seventeen year old Anton. Tekle doesn’t realize that he isn’t talented enough to become a big soccer star. Anton doesn’t understand his ambition. The other boys in his team, including Anton’s friends, reject him as well as the other refugees. The friendships between Anton and Tekle seems to reconcile both groups, but then one of the German players looses his position in the team to Tekle.
