So this really just happened and I cannot wrap my mind around it...the #BronxBerlinConnection documentary just one the European edition of the #HipHopFilmFestivalNYC and will now move on to the main festival in NYC later this year...mind blowing...thanks to the Hip Hop Film Festival NYC for selecting our movie and for believing in our vision...we need a Fullbright style Hip Hop scholarship opportunity for our kids from the streets which will connect across borders with the common language of Hip Hop...now more than ever...I believe this film has the power to advance that idea...thanks to all who have made this project possible, all who have ever been part of the BronxBerlinConnection and the most amazing filmmaker I know...my friend Alsy N'Diaye

Jenseits des American Dream

Last year, the most amazing Wiebke Keuneke went on tour with a delegation from Gangway in Chicago and Detroit and now her report "Jenseits des American Dream" - about the German and American social workers in the prison system in Chicago and Detroit has been granted an award.
1st prize in the radio category by RIAS BERLIN KOMMISSION

"(...) report draws its energy from the curiosity about another world. At the same time, it is about reverence for the committed people who try to change things there (...)" - says the jury.

Respect to Wiebke Keuneke who came with us to file a report about the improvement of the sometimes inhumane conditions within the prison system in the USA and thus contributed her part to the fact that prison reform should not remain a utopia in the USA.

 Many thanks to the Goethe-Institut and Goethe-Institut Chicago

 You can still listen to the report on the SWR2 website
