After the fire / Nach dem Brand

Running time: 50'

The successive uncovering of trauma experienced by the Turkish family of Arslan from the German town of Mölln. An annual family and community meeting commemorating the tragic day – the day of the fire that killed 3 family members. The survivors struggle to cope in every way possible. The film shows a specific example of human cruelty and stupidity (the perpetrator is a victim himself – a victim of family violence and neo-nazi ideology); it is also a universal story of coping with unjust trauma.
