bi'bakwerk #08


A film project with unaccompanied minors and their guardians (VormünderInnen)

2014 outnumbered the previous years relating to the cipher of unaccompanied minor refugees about 45% (10,400). Committed adults, who take a volunteering custodianship for unaccompanied minor refugees, are opening the possibility for social participation, by accomodating them in their private homes. bi’bak develops, along with already mediated Mündeln (German term for minor refugees being mediated to volunteering custodians), a film, which displays the difficulties and prospects of volunteering custodianship. The film is addressed to newly arrived minors as well as prospective custodians and represents in an entertaining way the concept and function of volunteering custodianship.
