In this short film we follow Syrian refugee Achmad's first steps in a new town, in a new world. 
Starring Achmad Koujo and help from Anwar Manla Sadoon I made this short portrait together with them, while they were still living in this former prison. Much thanks to Rutger Zuydervelt for allowing me to use his beautiful music.

At the time of filming, Achmad and Anwar didn't speak Dutch. Now only a year later, they do. It's an incredible achievement. So proud. See their faces after they first saw some shots of the film. It was great working with them. Especially by their optimism, knowing where they came from. It touched me deeply.
