CITIZENS & SUBJECTS – PERSONAL DIASPORAS AND POLITICS OF BELONGING

SCREENING

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948) sets out the fundamental rights of all human beings, including the freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each state; right to leave any country and to return to their country; right to seek and to enjoy asylum from persecution in other countries; the right to a nationality and of not being arbitrarily deprived of their nationality nor denied the right to change their nationality. But what does citizenship mean today? How do Western countries deal with mobility? How boundaries are perceived? Which stories are behind this? In Citizens & Subjects, a selection of videos and documentaries depicts the causes and effects of human trade trafficking, the complex relationship between homeland and diaspora, the stories of integration and exclusion, hopes and despairs.
