TURTLE SHELLS

Documentary

A rescue centre for reptiles in Munich becomes the intersection of a Syrian refugee turtle and a German sergeant - a film in the midst of glass terrariums about animals, mankind and war.

 

 

 

The "Pam Movie Theatre" is not only the smallest in the lower Bavarian town Passau, but also the most peculiar. Clearly, it would have ceased to exist if not for this exceptional 81 year-old man.

 

 

 

Two young men smuggle Syrian refugees over the Turkish border to Greece. While Europe increases its border security the work of the two becomes more and more difficult.
