Warland

Anna Knappe

Warland is a film about belonging to a place one does not recognize as home. In the film, young Afghan migrants who were born outside Afghanistan, talk about their so-called homeland which they have never seen. For Afghan migrants, the homeland is not only a matter of identity, but also the place where they are forcefully deported when their residence permits in other countries end or will not be granted, or when they are born in a country that does not recognize them.
