The Alliance Fran├žaise of Hyderabad, in collaboration with the Goethe Zentrum, the French Embassy in India & ARTE, is presenting The World Through ARTE's Eyes, a documentary film festival, from 14th to 16th December, at the Prasad Labs Preview Theatre. 8 short films will be screened during the 3-day festival.

The world through ARTE's eyes presents documentaries on a host of different places such as Mali, China, North Korea, USA, Haiti, Afghanistan, Iran, India, Germany and France. The effects of globalisation on people from vastly different backgrounds and their working conditions will be addressed, along with migration in Europe, stories from South-Asian countries, world music and cinema.

Today, the 2nd day, a 90-minute French film Welcome Europa by Bruno Ulmer, will be the third and last film to be screened. Economic refugees from across the world see Europe as the promised land of their dreams. But reality looks different. A tough struggle for survival begins once they have arrived in the imagined paradise.

Filmmaker Bruno Ulmer spent several months with 10 economic refugees from Romania, Morocco and Turkey for whom Europe, the Promised Land, turns out to be hell. Without identity papers and work permits, the men play out their struggle on the streets which often leads them to crime.

ARTE was created in 1992 as a joint Franco-German venture, and set itself the goal of producing high-quality programs on art and culture. As cultural exchange is given top priority and is consciously promoted by ARTE, the focus is on the cooperation between ARTE and public broadcasting stations across Europe. The programs are scheduled to be broadcast in several languages, and viewed throughout Europe.
