A COMPLEXION CHANGE
Intercultural Dialogue within a Migratory
The future is with us, how do we respond to the inevitabilities of population change,
clash or cooperation?
Partial Portrait / Past, Present, Future?
A relationship of Europe to the world and the human contributions to a developing Europe,
at the dawn of the 21st century.
As long time residents of Berlin and persons traveling to countries with multi-ethnic populations, an observation of the complexion change of Berlin in particular, Germany and the rest of Europe in general, is an occurrence we have witnessed, read about and studied in E.U. and additional documents.
The population adjustments in societies are always accompanied by birth pangs of varying intensities and duration.
The United States of America, while continually requiring observation and effort towards creating an intercultural society from a multicultural environment, offers indications and some would say, proof of the necessity and viability of refreshing various societies through complexion change, as the older generations pass the baton of work and life, to younger persons.
Our interest is to establish a constructive contribution to the historic inevitabilities of climate and complexion change in Berlin, Germany, Russia and the European Union, in order to support the people of Berlin and other European societies in adjusting to the present and preparing for future realities of a complexion change, with as few violent and unduly stressful birth pangs as possible.
Our project is inspired by the marvelous impetus of former president Nelson Mandela and his supreme ability to contribute to a peaceful transition of South African society from one complexion to many complexions. The principle of that transition is what we are attempting to understand, emulate and apply, during the realization of the XXIII. Black International Cinema Berlin/Germany, Warsaw/Poland & USA 2008.
