WHO I AM

A project by Angnese Grieco and Lucia Chiarla

 

Summary

What’s in a name? 

Behind every name stands a human being. Having arrived in a foreign land, what does one want to communicate to others? How can one and what does one want to tell about oneself?

Over the course of six months, the directors Agnese Grieco and Lucia Chiarla used a studio stage to talk to a group of ‘unaccompanied’ minors, refugees, about the topic of identity and to develop improvisations with them. War, religion, loss, violence, capitalism, money, sexuality, future, and hope were keywords informing this work.

The results are a documentation and a series of video portraits, snap shots from a new life, captured by the camera. Details from the everyday lives of adolescent refugees that have arrived in Berlin and are now part of our city and society.
