Experimental Short Film by Beina Xu / 19 mins / Completed
A refugee known only as Alberto flies from Athens to Brussels on a fake passport. Three years later, a small crew from Berlin tries to make a film by shooting the landscape of his transit. Things fall apart. They film pigeons instead. The artifice of documentary becomes the subject itself: where do we stand between image and meaning? A personal document—starring an angry shisha—emerges.
