In a neighbourhood rife with racial tension, a local girl falls for a recent immigrant who is the victim of prejudice and shame.

Winner of over 30 awards including the 2016 Crystal Bear for Best Short at the Berlin Film Festival, “Balcony” is the story of Tina, a troubled teen who befriends an elusive young Muslim woman. Intrigued by the obvious cultural distance between them, Tina takes it upon herself to fill in the gaps with her own personal biases and stereotypes. Without giving too many details of this captivating modern thriller away, Tina’s actions while drunk on her own assumptions leads to dangerous consequences.
