Our world of work is crisscrossed by borders. For some, jobs are created, others are unemployed. For many, the right to stay turns into a work struggle of its own. How are work, bittersweet idleness, and the global border regime connected? This is what PROTEST PRODUCTIONS COLLECTIVE reports about in its new shorts.
Aladji TraorÃ© tells the story of his journey through both desert and sea to get from SokodÃ© in Togo to Vienna. Traumatic and life-threatening for those whose safe passage is blocked by closed borders. The documentary short â€˜Best practices to stop deportationsâ€™ focuses on the struggles within the borders of Europe and shows practical experiences of diverse and sometimes also successful resistance against deportation. With â€˜Shoesâ€™, Hany Jaber shares a playful and poetical view on the worldwide relations of work and production that hide behind every single shoe.
Special: a promotional event for PPC Airlines at Wien Mitte train station / Wien Mitte The Mall. PPC Airlines has been operating on a voluntary basis since 2015. The airline that does not deport and only takes you where you want to go: no passports or visas required. PPC â€“ global freedom of movement and safe travel for all!
The Protest Productions Collective, a group of activists and film makers, originated from the Vienna Refugee Movement in 2014. PPC are refugees, migrants, and peo-ple who were born and raised here, who all share the commitment to fight for a world without borders and exclusion.
