Abstract

The article features several European films that represent the essential aspects of European immigration and multiculturalism. It focuses on the large-scale migration of Albanians after the fall of Communism, the influx of Afghani and Kurdish political refugees, the continued persecution and marginalization of Romani populations, and the human trafficking of women in the region. It compares and contrasts the strategies of identification used by several filmmakers, including Gianni Amelio, Tony Gatlif, and Michael Haneke, to represent immigrant and minority identities.
