about the project

I’m a Peruvian-German film student living in Berlin. I’m in the casting process for my university final film, a short titled "Ghosts, Coming Home”, that I’m making with a producer from Zimbabwe, and together we wanted to work on a story that centred around the lives and experiences of refugees, immigrants, and people of colour in Berlin.

Logline: After being the victim of a hate crime, a young film student is pulled into a political extremist group as a paid hitman.

The tone of the short is drama but with elements of humour and surrealism throughout.
