Switzerland, 2010, 50 min
Anthony and Robert – youngsters from Nairobi – give insight into their everyday life. With a film camera they document and comment the life on the streets and in the Halfway Centre. Thereby, not only their trials and tribulations are expressed but also their sense of humor and their plans for the future, which are full of hope: Moving images which convince through their authenticity. By handing over the camera to the two protagonist, a dynamic change of perspectives is established. This renders possible a differentiated examination of the subject matter as well as the proceedings of the film.
