FREMD is about migrants between Africa and Europe. It accompanies the young Malian, Mohammed, who is already making his third attempt to reach Europe. miriam Faßbender’s documentary recreates the living conditions emigrants encounter on such a journey. The protagonists, whilst individuals in their own right, reflect the 18 million people who are currently in migration, giving up one place to move to another.
Faßbender was able to win her protagonists’ confidence due to her long and painstaking research, as well as FREMD’s long shooting period. It is their flight, waiting in limbo and unexpected situations that determine the film’s rhythm, just as does the reality of the routes these refugees from poverty and oppression take. They and their living conditions stand for Africa’s transformation and the situation at Europe’s gates.
In the presence of Miriam Faßbender,  Max Milhahn (Producer) and Andreas Landeck (cutter).
