YEAR: 2017 CLIENT: Rise and Shine
Documentary film poster. The director traces young immigrants in Germany over the course of a year. The children’s perspective unveils an undisguised and highly moving look at their new co-existence in Europe. The documentary film I’M OKAY (original title: ALLES GUT) poses the question: ‘How do we give a home to those whose most urgent need is a future?’. What Pia Lenz captures in her documentary about two refugee families’ first year in Hamburg is the unbearable state between hope and fear. She shows, in an unbiased and tactfully sensitive way, just how exhausting a new beginning is for all sides.
