“In Brandenburg someone has crashed into a tree again. What else is there to do in Brandenburg when you’re 17 or 18?” (Rainald Grebe). How does a clique of Arabian, Kurdish and Roma teenage girls handle the passage to adulthood in a place that still holds little appeal for young people? As they step into the unknown, the girls lay claim to their own position within society. Ina Borrmann
