A real life immigration drama is playing out at this year's Berlin Film Festival.

Nazif Muijic won Best Actor at Berlinale in 2013 for a film that followed a day in his life as a scrap metal collector in Bosnia.

Muijic went home when the festival ended, but has returned to Germany to seek asylum.

So far the authorities have denied his request.
