Black Red Yellow

Black Red Yellow

The experiences of men and women from the Middle East with the quirks and amiable sides of German everyday culture are experiences of frustration, shame and joy. Germany seen through the fresh eyes of newcomers: grandpa and grandma in an intercultural comparison, misunderstandings at the supermarket checkout, piercings, kissing in public. Unpretentious and funny scenes, like a travel diary sketched by Jessica Neubauer and the Vamos Animation collective.
