Part of the opening of the be longing exhibition by Deniz Soezen which investigates the concept of culture, subjectivity and the unresolved nature of belonging.

2004 marked the 40th anniversary of the so called "Anwerbeabkommen" - a recruitment agreement between Austria and Turkey - which brought many Turkish migrants to Austria to expand the country's workforce.

Against this background, the film tells the stories of nine of those so called "guest workers".  Never before have their achievements and experiences been the focus of a documentary film.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director.
