Congratulations

Salih Ahmed, 2013 | BFI Future Film (United Kingdom)

"Contra... Contragu... Congaru..." Learning a new language can be challenging, but when you move to a new country and don't speak the native tongue, there's a lot more pressure to try. Salih Ahmed has always struggled with the word 'Congratulations', and this film explores his struggles, along with the issues of living thousands of miles from those closest to you. Produced by the British Film Institute in London, UK during June 2013 for Remapping Europe, a Doc Next Network project remixing prevailing imagery of migrants.
