"I'm not racist, but ..."
Short Films About Everyday Racism

"I'm not racist, but...": Phrases likes these try to establish a place for racism in everyday life. In cooperation with Amnesty International Jena, cellu l'art Short Film Festival has put together a film programme which offers diverse perspectives on this issue. Conflicts on the bus, at work, throughout the wide field of culture: These films probe society, detect everyday racism, and portray how to deal with it.

This film programme will be shown across seven Thuringian cities.
The films will be screened in their original language with English subtitles. Admission is free, donations are welcome.

The short films of the "Alltagsrassismus protokolliert" series are viewable on the "Amnesty International Deutschland" website.
