WE ARE YOUNG, WE ARE STRONG

DIRECTOR: Burhan Qurbani - GERMANY

The gripping true story of one night in August 1992 in the East German town of Rostock, when a racist mob, watched by around 3,000 onlookers, attacked an apartment building containing over 100 Vietnamese men, women, and children.  This so-called “Night of the Fire” became synonymous with German xenophobia in the newly united country and highlighted the inherent political failings of local government. Told from the point of view of three very different characters —a Vietnamese woman, a young rioting German, and the boy’s father, a politican trapped in a dilemma— We Are Young is a compelling and astute study of disaffected youth and civic disgrace. (127 mins.)

 

Filmography: Shahada (2010), Women Interrupted (2009)
