The Iranian artists Mehrdad Hossein Razi and Arjang Omrani have developed a documentary together with a group of young refugees. Dealing with questions that all participants have in common, the film asks: What does it mean for a person to be displaced, to have to flee their homeland and leave their family behind to start a new life in an unfamiliar country and culture? The film centres on so-called “UMRs” – unaccompanied minor refugees who now live in Cologne and had to flee their country on their own to survive and fight for a better future elsewhere. “On the Run” is a supported project of the Academy of the Arts of the World, and the film will be shown during the SOMMERBLUT festival.
