November 2018 Panel discussion on the movie HALIM in Villah

HALIM was the movie that brought us together yesterday evening in Villah – its director, Werner Fiedler, hosts and panelists at the same time: Eithne Knappitsch and Karen as well as Khuloodalzaidi and me as panelists and… many young people asking powerful questions after the screening of the film. What is the movie about? Let me share a short story, Werner shared with us: “One day, quiet Elias encounters performance artist HALIM while walking through the park. When Elias begins visiting HALIM each day, Elias’ mother becomes suspicious and decries that he cannot be friends with a refugee. Elias defies his mother and returns to the park, but discovers that HALIM has vanished. With a message of hope and Belonging, this story of intergenerational friendship is a testament to the lasting impact that shared stories can have on one another.”
