Land of Promise 2013

Powerful and revealing archive footage illustrates how immigration has affected European societies over the last 60 years. In a crowded train, young spaniards say goodbye while singing their native country. A Dutch minister, who has come to Morocco to recruit workers whom his "companies" demand, systematically eliminates graduates. Somewhere in Belgium, a laughing Turkish boy helps his flemish friend doing his home works. In Rotterdam, two young men with long hair set on fire home for foreign workers, after braking all of its windows. In Bradford, in front of burned cars and broken showcases, an Asian marchant deplores a "return of ten years". In Amsterdam, thousands of people pay tribute to the filmmaker Theo Van Gogh, who has just been murdered.
