A 30 minutes fiction film by David Aronowitsch
Dublin is a film about what happens in Sweden after a dramatic flight from a civil war. Daoud is a Dublin case. He has no influence over his future. He is in the hands of a quiet and suppressive system controlling his life.
Dublin got Special Mention at BUSTER Copenhagen Internationall Film Festival for Children and Youth. Motivation: "The handsome Somali boy Daoud's loneliness and desperation as a commuter refugee is relentlessly, almost documentary sharp in David Aronowittsch's 'Dublin'. With a lingering camera and long stagnant shoots, the images create a mood of powerlessness that fills the adolescent boy. With deep wonder Daoud tries to comprehend his destiny. He can´t return to Somalia, and he is banished from one country to another up through Europe. A limbo that he desperately tries to break. A quiet and heartbreaking film that makes a strong impression. That is why, the jury has chosen to give a special mention to 'Dublin'."
