Lukas Grevis, 73 min, 2023 - Luxembourg
In a small village in Luxembourg, a coffee shop employee and her new partner are trying to set up a cultural centre for refugees. One day, the village mascot, a wild dog, is shot dead on the edge of the forest. This event creates a division among the residents, not to mention the mayor, who displays a genuine xenophobia. In this first film, which brings together a host of characters, Lukas Grevis succeeds in portraying the rise of extremism in Europe and the efforts, sometimes completely stifled, to fight it. An uncompromising look at a terrifying reality, and an excellent educational tool for the younger generation.
