I Am Dublin
Directed by David Aronowitsch
Ahmed has been in Europe for six years, living in hiding in Sweden for three years. When he arrived by boat to the Italian island Lampedusa, he was forced to leave his fingerprints. At that moment he became a Dublin-case. Italy was his first country in Europe and the Dublin Regulation stipulates that he can only apply for asylum there – it is called the principle of “first country of asylum.” The EU has thus created a large group of young people drifting around Europe. The so-called Dublin-cases are deprived of all rights and thrown out from country to country.
David Aranowitsch’s previous film, Facing Genocide: Khieu Samphan and Pol Pot, was shown at ASN 2011.
