Who Are the Others?

A man returns to his native city to rediscover his past and the mother he lost as a child in Tala Hadid's Your Dark Hair Ihsan. Who are the others? Mounir Fatmi's The Others Are the Others bluntly poses this simple question to passersby in the streets of Paris and Mantes-la-Jolie; the answers are laconic, evasive, tender, conniving, and philosophical. A chance encounter between a young student and a recently paroled ex-convict provides the framework for The Train, Brahim Fritah's distilled, muted, and thoughtful existential allegory on humanity and cultural identity. In Max Lemcke's You Are All Called Mohamed, a young Moroccan succeeds in reaching Madrid illegally.
