As Far As I Can Walk - Stefan Arsenijevic (director)
t/m Zondag 27 November 2022
A re-imagining of the medieval Serbian epic poem “Banovich Strahinya” in which contemporary African migrants take the place of Serbian national heroes. Winner of dozens awards, including Grand Prix and Europa Cinemas Label at Karlovy Vary for outstanding cinematography, appealing performances and the excellent presentation of one of the most defining problems of our times – migration. Identity, tradition and love are at the core of this intriguing film which provides a moving portrait of a couple struggling during the migrant crisis. Strahinya and his wife, Ababuo, both 28, left Ghana and against all odds they managed to reach Germany, but were deported back to Belgrade. Serbia may not be Germany, but Strahinya does his best to start a new life while Ababuo, a passionate woman aspiring to become an actress in London, feels unfulfilled in life. The question is whether they can survive as a couple as one night the temptation emerges to top all the bureaucratic hardship and poverty.
