Le thé au harem d'Archimède by Mehdi Charef ( Visual )
24 editions published between 1984 and 2007 in French and German and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Two teenagers without jobs in Paris have nothing better to do than petty thieving in the transit system. Madjid, of Algerian background, lives with his parents and siblings in an apartment. It is hard for him to get a job because he is not a French citizen, something his mother refuses to do anything about because even if they are in France, she feels nothing for her adoptive country and has no intention of giving up her nationality. Madjid, being thus limited, must learn fast the way of the streets. His pal, Patrick, who is a French citizen, feels no need to go into any job that will pay him minimum wage. He knows he can do better stealing whatever he can to satisfy his basic needs. We watch him and Madjid get into all kinds of trouble. They have not discovered the profit in drugs yet, so their world revolves around the housing complex where they have become a pest most people would like to get rid of

Sieben Episoden - sieben Regisseure. Jeder von ihnen aus einem anderen Land, weltberühmt und erfolgreich. Ihr gemeinsamer Blick richtet sich auf die "unsichtbaren" Kinder dieser Welt. Es sind die Kinder am Rande der Gesellschaft: Bily und Joao in Katia Lunds Episode aus Brasilien, deren Schätze leere Blechdosen und Kanister sind, woraus sie sich Spielzeug basteln. Da ist Circo aus Neapel, der in einer Betonwüste am Stadtrand lebt und sich mit Diebstählen und Überfällen durchschlägt. Oder die von Ridley und Jordan Scott erzählte Geschichte über den Kriegsfotografen Jonathan aus England, der sich in seine Kindheit zurückträumt. Emir Kusturica erzählt von Marjan aus Serbien, der von klein auf von seinem Vater gezwungen wird, zu stehlen. Dann sind da noch der in Schulen Bomben legende Kindersoldat Mehdi Charaf aus Rwanda und Blanca aus Brooklyn - die Tochter drogensüchtiger Eltern, die sich mit HIV infiziert hat. Und schliesslich zeigt John Woo Little Mao und Song Song aus China: ein Waisenkind und ein wohlbehütetes Mädchen, deren Freundschaft an ein kleines Wunder grenzt. Sieben Schicksale - alltäglich und anrührend zugleich

Lund): due ragazzini brasiliani di San Paolo si danno da fare per sopravvivere vendendo lattine, cartoni, metalli di vario genere. 5) Jonathan (R. e Jordan Scott): fotoreporter di guerra, angosciato dal mestiere, regredisce all'infanzia per ritrovare un senso alla vita. 6)Ciro (S. Veneruso): l'adolescente Ciro fa parte della microcriminalità di strada del degrado di Napoli. 7) Song Song & Little Cat (J.
