Refugee's Welcome by Bruce LaBruce by Bruce LaBruce
When Erika received a confession about the experience of a Syrian refugee and his recent arrival in Germany, she could think of no better guest director for the job than the prolific, yet controversial Bruce LaBruce. When a Syrian refugee comes across a poetry reading, him and the young poet share a moment of recognition and desire from across the room. Unable to speak the language and too shy to approach the poet further, he walks away. But this chance encounter won't be their last... Sexy, brutal, romantic, and utterly earth-shattering – this film perfectly captures our similarities and differences, and how in a world where hate exists love prevails.
