Those Who Go Those Who Stay

Directed by Ruth Beckermann

  • Austria 2013; 75 min
  • Original version: German, Italian, Hebrew, French
  • Genre: Documentary


Rain on a window pane, a fire truck, a tomcat with innumerable offspring: it is an intentionally unintentional gaze that allows for chance encounters, for stories and memories – leads that Ruth Beckermann follows across Europe and the Mediterranean. Nigerian asylum seekers in Sicily, an Arab musician in Galilee, nationalists drunk on beer in Vienna, the Capitoline Wolf, and three veiled young women trying for minutes to cross a busy road in Alexandria. Threads, cloth and textiles pop up like book marks in a fabric of movement, of travelling or seeking refuge.

THOSE WHO GO THOSE WHO STAY is a story of being on the move, in the world and one’s own life.
