Off to Germany! Using analog, home video and archive material, TÜRKISCHE RIVIERA essays three generations of guest workers, their search for happiness and longings for home. A video cassette is inserted: A toddler in a paddling pool, somewhere on the beach. Parents and grandparents scurry around. Pictures from Senem's first visit to Turkey, as she tells us. It's the prelude to a search for home. With interviews of her parents and grandparents, the filmmaker takes us through the ups and downs of three generations of Turkish guest workers in Germany. Today, the family has returned to their homeland, only Senem has remained in Germany. Where does she belong? Sober reflection meets poetic collage. A picture of home in the gap between here and there. ONLY AVAILABLE IN GERMANY!
