The Waikato Goethe Society presents as part of their annual film sessions: Almanya - Welcome to Germany.

Director: Yasemin Samdereli, colour, 95 min., 2009-11

Short synopsis:
Hüseyin Yilmaz came to Germany from Turkey in 1964, and later brought his wife and children. With warmth and a sense of humour, his granddaughter recounts their family history - whilst the clan is “back home” on holiday. Where their real home is, is a question they are all confronted with.

Almanya - Welcome to Germany is an extraordinary contribution to the current German debate on integration, played out by two young women who were able to weave their personal experiences into the story. Depicting identities that evolve slowly, the film reflects on the difficult question of what we call “home” – a question for which there are many different answers. “Are we Turkish or are we German,” asks little Cenk, unsettled by his classmates’ reactions - and confused, because there is no space for Anatolia on the large map of Europe in his classroom.
