Talking integration and movies with Yasemin Şamdereli

Could it happen here?

Many people here in Germany were quite shaken by the riots that engulfed London and other English cities this past August. They were, of course, also reminded of similar scenes in the banlieues – the volatile peripheries – of many French cities in recent years. As a British citizen living in Germany, I was often asked whether the same kind of outburst of anger and violence could happen here. My reply was a very cautious probably not. And my guess is that my latest guest on Talking Germany – the film-maker Yasemin Şamdereli– would agree, although it was the one question I didn’t actually get around to asking her during what was a very stimulating encounter.
