What it's all about

Not far from us, and yet out of sight, the borders between countries unfortunately also show the limits of the non-negotiability of human rights. In cooperation with Balkanbrücke and the Kölner Spendenkonvoi, the Sommerblut Festival is presenting a multimedia exhibition on the situation of people on the move at the EU's external borders. The works of photographers Abdul Saboor, Giorgio Morra and János Buck depict the developments of recent years on the so-called Balkan route. 

That's why you have to come

Artistic means are used to create a space for debate, discussion and reflection. Testimonials from refugees and volunteer supporters, as well as fact-based background information, provide additional context to the documentary photographs. 


We are showing the film "Green Border" in a special screening at the Cologne Filmhaus.
