Musik zum Anfassen LogoThe project "BilderFluchten - FluchtenKlänge" brings together unaccompanied minor refugees with filmmakers and composers in Vienna.

The refugees get involved in the process of producing a short film about places in Vienna which seem important to them. Afterwards, a film music is produced in collaboration with composers.
