“13.11” is a six-episode web series dedicated to six life stories of migration rooted within the background of a changing Europe, which goes live on 13 November 2017. The episodes are set in six European cities: Toulouse, Seville, Riga, Hamburg, Lisbon and Bologna on 13 November 2015, the day of the terrorist attack in Paris. “13.11” tells everyday life stories of people linked one to another, no matter their ethnicities and backgrounds.

Themes of our times like migration, development, global interdependence and inequalities between populations are depicted through the feelings of the main characters, highlighting the importance of the “human face” of migration.

On 13 November 2015, Paris experienced one of the worst terrorist attacks in recent European history. That moment created a shift in perception of the central issues surrounding the migration debate from welcome and integration issues towards control and security issues. Out of this context, the web series “13.11”, directed by six directors, was born.

This new web series produced by EleNfant Film is part of the AMITIE Code project developed under the leadership of the City of Bologna, lead city of the European Coalition of Cities against Racism (ECCAR), with the support of UNESCO’s International Coalition of Inclusive and Sustainable Cities – ICCAR.

The AMITIE Code (Awareness raising on MIgrations, developmenT and human rIghts through local partnErships) is a project which aims to raise awareness among citizens on migration, development and human rights and to train key actors on these issues, including teachers and civil servants working in local authorities.

ECCAR is the regional chapter of the International Coalition of Inclusive and Sustainable Cities – ICCAR, launched by UNESCO in 2004. ICCAR promotes international cooperation between cities to strengthen advocacy for global solidarity and collaboration, and promote inclusive urban development free from all forms of discrimination, by sharing good practices, knowledge and expertise, and by advancing joint action through the development of participatory city-level policies and initiatives.
