Video: Black - "On the Sunny side of the Alps" (Slovenia)

Because Slovenia has elected its first black mayor it's time for some African-Slovene cinema.

The short Slovene film (trailer) "On the Sunny side of the Alps" was a response to racist and xenophobic events in Slovenia. The name of the film refers to the slogan of a promotion campaign of the Slovene Tourist Board which wanted to present Slovenia in the best possible light.

The film is about two typical Slovenian families who live in an Alpine idyll, until one of them buys a new car…

The film is well meant, but it's clear that black people are a novelty in this part of Europe.
