I Am Nobody. Migrants in the middle of nowhere

To film migrants waiting for a final resolution to their asylum application in a European country, filmmakers Barbara Matejčić and Nina Urumov resort to an ingenious device: filming only their hands and the objects they have brought from their homelands.

The result is a short film where the testimonies of these people gain an imposing presence over the images of a photograph, a toy, a piece of clothing. With few resources, we travel to another place in the world where, for now, they cannot return.
