Welcome Europa
Bruno Ulmer
2006 - 90 min - Super 16 mm & DV Cam - Couleur et Noir & Blanc - France

Welcome Europa follows eight young men, Kurdish, Moroccan and Romanian as they try to find their way to Paris, Amsterdam or Madrid. No visas, entirely on their own, they struggle for survival. Political oppression or poverty forced them from home.
Their goal is to find a way to provide for their families. The European Dream falls apart even as they reach to welcome it. In their raw existence on the streets, prostitution looms like an inevitable destination. Sink or swim; they all face the ultimate question. What is it to be a man?
