”A Step Without Feet” is a documentary about connecting and sharing each other’s cultures through universal themes like music, art, family and friends. Within the backdrop of Berlin’s beautiful winter landscape, we captured the daily lives of seven extraordinary Syrians exiled from their home country.
Due to misguided stereotypes perpetuated by the media being labelled a “efugee” tends to carry negative connotations and this makes them feel isolated. The purpose of this film is to counter the medias dehumanization of the Syrian asylum seekers. Meeting them reminds us of their humanity.
