The first film about “secondos”: A Turkish ice hockey player explains why, in Switzerland, he could only fall in love with an Italian. A young Italian woman explains why she prefers to rap in English. A hip-hop artist with Hispanic origin fights for his political rights, and the director reminisces on how, despite his Arabic roots, he’s been persecuted as a Jew. BABYLON 2 reflects on the rise of a new urban culture in Switzerland, which is instigated by the second generation of immigrants and the help of electronic media.
