Lost in Limbo
Documentary film, 2022, HD, 45 min
Emrah lives in Serbia, a country he left as a child. He was deported from Germany due to crimes. Emrah now works as a day laborer on Belgrade’s construction sites: sometimes there’s work, sometimes not. Trapped in a swamp of bureaucracy, fake friends, drugs and bad habits, Emrah tells his story unadorned. It’s a story of an underdog with nothing left to lose. And yet: he is still hoping for better times.
with Emrah Gradina, Rocki Rakic, Aza Bojanovic, Milicia Jocic
