Oury Jalloh

The story of Oury Jalloh, who burnt to death in a German prison cell in 2005.
Oury Jalloh, a refugee from Sierra-Leone, who lives in former Eastern Germany, despairs of the society around him. He cannot attend social life and has no perspectives, he is not allowed to leave his district, he is not allowed to work and slowly he begins a silent, inner fight against systematic racism and social exclusion. The semi-documental short film was developed between refugees and young independent filmmakers and is connected to a true event: On the 7th January 2005, Oury Jalloh burnt to death in a police cell in Dessau, Germany.
