Cinema Lucernu will be ruled today by the German director Burhan Qurbani and his film se snímkem We Are Young. We Are Strong. The director Burhan Qurbani accepted an invitation from Goethe-Institut Prague and will present his film in person. The film is a riveting drama capturing the racial riots, which broke out in Germany more than 20 years ago. However, it reflects not only these old events but also the persisting problem of xenophobia, which is convulsing Europe with constantly growing intensity. The suggestively presented film uses camera in a highly original manner. It offers the ways in which three different participants of the riots see the same event. Besides the established German actors such as Devid Striesow (Time of Cannibals, 3, Downfall), the thrilling drama full of powerful acting performances also features the oncoming generation of actors: including Joel Basman or Jonas Nay. Burhan Qurbani was born in West Germany in 1980 to a family of Afghan immigrants. After graduating from high school, he gained experience in his desired field by working in media and film and eventually enrolled in film direction studies at the Film Academy of Baden-Wurttemberg. His first film, a short called Illusion (2007), won several awards.
