Mos Stellarium is a video installation featuring parts of the homonymous documentary about young refugees. Four different narratives are shown simultaneously, connecting different parts of the overall storyline, thus giving a non-linear reading of the film and creating links between unknown destinies.
Mos Stellarium is a poetic feature documentary about Dzemil, Milena, Anna, Yunus, Rijad and Eko, six young refugees who talk about their escape and their journey, as well as the new problems they encounter in Luxembourg. For years now, most of them have been living without passports in the long corridors of the exiled.
They tell their stories as young refugees in intimate detail. Through tales of the landscapes they have traveled and all the encounters they have made, their memories look back at these uncommon journeys and lead them in turn to look to the future. It is about the human existence in a universal sense.
Like mysterious constellations, their voyages began in Afghanistan, Syria, Kosovo or Montenegro. They headed for Europe, and Luxembourg in particular, where the grass seemed greener, and their destinies have turned them into young adults with dignity.
With Anna, Dzemil, Eko, Milena, Rijad, Yunus.
