Berlin-based Brazilian director Karim Aïnouz (Futuro Beach) returns with this impeccably photographed documentary chronicling a year in the lives of asylum seekers in Berlin’s historic Tempelhof, a former airport built by the Nazi government as a symbol for Hitler’s Germania. The irony is not lost on Aïnouz or his subjects—Ibrahim, an 18-year-old from Syria, and Qutaiba, a 35-year-old from Iraq who was forced to flee before he could graduate from medical school. Today, the airport has been repurposed into an emergency medical headquarters: an ad hoc village for those waiting to be deported or granted residency. Central Airport THF is a moving portrait of displaced people as well as a treatise on our malleable relationship to architecture. U.S. Premiere
