From Beckermann’s website: “Rain on a window pane, a fire truck, a tomcat with innumerable offspring: it is an intentionally unintentional gaze that allows for chance encounters, for stories and memories – leads that Ruth Beckermann follows across Europe and the Mediterranean.
Nigerian asylum seekers in Sicily, an Arab musician in Galilee, nationalists drunk on beer in Vienna, the Capitoline Wolf, and three veiled young women trying for minutes to cross a busy road in Alexandria.

Complex, enigmatic film with deals with migration and globalisation, among other themes. Interesting in terms of technique as well as thematically; would be useful for teaching to students already familiar with the basics of film analysis.
