Private Project

First they came...

“First of all, the gypsies came to get me, and I was happy because they stole. Then the Jews came to pick me up, and I kept silent, because they disliked me. Then the gay men came, and I was relieved, because they were annoying to me. Then the Communists came for me, and I said nothing, because I was not a Communist. One day they came to get me, and there was no one left to protest " Taking its cue from the text of the sermon of the Lutheran pastor and German theologian Martin Niemöller, the short wants to tell that today the problem of racism in sport remains unsolved. We are witnessing sad manifestations of racism and xenophobia in a context that should unite rather than divide. The message is that no one is safe with racists, because when dealing with people moved by irrational and senseless feelings, anyone could become the next chosen victim. The short is a warning against indifference, more dangerous than hatred itself.
