refugee.tv is an act of empowerment. The vision is to create a TV station, which is designed by refugees in cooperation with a German/Austrian film team. The reporters of refugee.tv came to Europe as refugees. Amongst them are many skilled workers, some filmmakers, journalists and cameramen. Many had to flee their home country because they were putting the spotlight on problems and injustices in their home countries. refugee.tv provides them a platform to continue their passionate work.
The double DVD “REFUGEE SUPERSTAR” contains reports and films for people who wish a change in the perspective of the current coverage. Instead of crisis we search for opportunity. We put the spotlight on the all engulfing fear and highlight that the “others” can as well enrich. Our films build bridges and tear down fences, without fear but joy of life.
refugee.tv is artivism, uniting art with civilm engagement. We want to resolve borders through filmmaking and engagement.
