Borders and Divisions: Exile plus shorts


In Zoe Beloff’s playful reflection on history and politics, Brecht and Benjamin are reincarnated as an Iranian and an African American, roaming the streets of New York and conversing about their experiences. Weaving documentary and fiction, Beloff deftly and humorously demonstrates the ongoing dialogue between past and present. Exile screens alongside three short films that present stories of divisive contemporary politics: from the US travel ban and Europe’s closed borders to the far-right National Democratic Party of Germany.
