Goethe-Institute Rio de Janeiro: Poetic Images of Germany 2016!
Inspired by the old, widely-distributed German folk song Kein schöner Land [No finer land], which is also the motto of the 17th poesiefestival berlin, young poets from the Goethe Institute in Rio de Janeiro take a look at Germany in a poem competition. Will the integration of the many refugees from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and other African countries succeed? What kind of Germany is coming into being in these months as seen from the perspective of Brazil? The video montage shows the poets reading their own poems and the prizewinners will be chosen during the festival.
