Hotel President opens a multifaceted view to a centrally located four-star hotel in Berlin that is currently used to accommodate asylum seekers. The short film includes interviews with asylum seekers, whose thoughts are contrasted with portraits of presidents, prime ministers and other politicians who seem to be giving the asylum seekers a warm welcome to the “West”.
