Newsreel 80 – Metka, Meki

documentary, 78', 2021

Through nine culinary chapters, the film portraits Metka, who left for Germany as a temporary worker in 1968. It accompanies her in various everyday situations in her kitchen, and depicts a particular tale through her storytelling. Her life as a Gastarbeiter has had such a distinct effect, that she generously and full of hospitality understands the situation of migrants of today. As such, she has welcomed a group of different types of migrants into her home – one, that has fled war and seeks refuge in Germany. In the spirit of solidarity and mutual respect, the film records the experience of coexistence of different travelers.
