7 pm – I Am Dublin film screening

Anna Persson, Ahmed Abdullahi, David Aronowitsch and Sharmarke Binyusuf
I Am Dublin, 75’, 2015

A documentary beginning in a fictional story from a harsh reality. The film portrays Ahmed playing a character whose life mirrors his own. Ahmed is a Dublin-case like Daoud, the character he plays in the 30-minute fiction film “Dublin”. Ahmed has been in Europe for six years, living in hiding in Sweden 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 the 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.” Through the Dublin Regulation the EU has 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 in Europe.
