Can Candan’s documentary film shows the largest minority in Berlin – the Turkish immigrant community – during a period of upheaval that also saw the community confronted with increased xenophobia and violence. In 1991, two years after the fall of the Wall and during the 30th anniversary of the bilateral Recruitment Agreement between Turkey and Germany, Candan interviewed members of the Turkish community on the topic of German Reunification.
