Storyline

When he was nine, Shahib Sidow fled from Somalia's civil war to the Netherlands. After twenty years without legal status, he's still picking up the pieces. In "Papieren Land" Shahib recounts his adventures - warts and all - as a musical and sensual journey. His friend Marie van Vollenhoven frames the story in a white space that she continuously transforms and animates. Recreating the feeling of time lost, the film questions the robustness of good intentions both in friendship and in bureaucracy.
