NZZ 

I shot this piece in Buenos Aires for an article for NZZ's Nicole Anliker who reported about the slum dwellers in "Villa 20" one of the biggest slums of the city. The people of "Villa 20" are fighting for basic services like electricity, water and roads to be extended to their neighborhoods which house millions of the working population of Argentina's capital city.

(August 2015) My footage and interview in Halberstadt, Germany. A town where 1,900 refugees are staying in a camp, waiting for their claims to asylum to be registered. The army was putting up tents because the authorities are overwhelmed by the rising numbers of refugees from Syria, the Balkans and Africa. Angelika Klatt - the lady I interviewed - is one of the mindful people who are trying to help refugees in Halberstadt, while other parts of Germany are experiencing increasing waves of violent racism and anti-refugee protests.
