Cities of Arrival

A film that shows how immigration has reshaped Europe since the 1950s.

Using provocative archive footage and individual life stories, and focussing on European cities where minorities constitute a majority (or very soon will do) this documentary shows how, since the 1950s, immigration has irreversibly changed the face of Europe, and why it will continue to do so.
