ON THE STREETS OF… Leipzig

A cinematic discovery in those places we live at: our cities.

At age 23, Philipp has already completed a street carreer. Protectory, Ritalin, drugs, dealing, violence. For two years he used to live on the streets, sleep in abandoned houses, steal, fight and survive. Homeless shelter was not an option to him because of the smell, crowded rooms with eight beds, snoring fellows and missing privacy. Better to stay outside and alone, even if it almost cost his life.

Philipp takes us on a tour, showing us his Leipzig.
