Geschichten von Jakob / Stories of Jacob

Filmforum, Germany 2023, 12 Min., chin. OV, ger. st

From afar, Perghuzat Enver reflects on his upbringing in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in China. The film is about belonging, friendship, and freedom in an increasingly repressive system. Using delicately-drawn animation and poetic pictures, the film illustrates the search for his own identity, and the inner conflicts that leaving your homeland triggers.
