Die Deutschlander Looking for a Home

Daniel is a Lebanese-German musician with Jewish roots. Alisha is a black-German student at Leuphana University. Rasha Alhindi is a German-Palestinian filmmaker and the director of this short documentary that looks at how global migration has affected the identity of a small city in northern Germany – and some of its residents. How do individuals with a migration background fit into German society? As a storyteller, Rashad goes in search of clues in front of Lüneburg’s medieval city wall and through encounters with city-guide Verena Fiedler and archaeologist Prof. Dr. Edgar Ring. Historical information, personal insight and humor pervade this microcosmic look into Europe’s change from a more homogenous to a more culturally diverse society.
