THAT’S HOW WE DO IT! is a documentary about teenagers and their experiences of exclusion, life plans, and ways of growing up. How does one’s own culture founded, how are prejudices and xenophobia felt?

When in Fântânele, a small town in Romania, a family made their way to Berlin in recent years, the lights went on in another apartment at Straße der Pariser Kommune, behind the Berliner Ostbahnhof. Now, 1,000 of the approx. 6,000 inhabitants of the three villages which make up the Fântânele commune are currently living in Berlin. The filmmakers accompanied several of the families from Friedrichshain for several months and through their conversations learned many new things about a culture about which everyone believes they know something, without necessarily ever having had any contact with Roma communities.
