SAKHI

‚Äč

In a metal container that sleeps four men, Sakhi Poya serves green tea. Though rarely entered by German citizens, Harburger Postrasse Refugee Housing is the first stop for thousands who flee their war-torn and economically ravaged homelands in search of stability and safety in Hamburg. In the quiet fluorescence of his new home, Sakhi recounts his harrowing journey from Afghanistan, revealing fears, frustrations and dreams of an ordinary life. Despite his simple and spare surroundings, Sakhi’s rich visions for the future and his role in society build a subtle but powerful portrait of the modern refugee experience.
