“Fiercely committed migration documentary” – Guardian
Amidst the worst refugee crisis since WW2, Nottingham filmmaker Sharon Walia’s feature documentary tells the stories of volunteer rescuers –including a firefighter, a footballer and a former nurse – who have stepped in where governments have held back and are saving refugees as part of their day-to-day lives.
The Movement screening will be followed by a Q & A with the film's director Sharon Walia, who will be in conversation with Ulrike Kubatta, filmmaker and Associate Professor at De Montfort University.
Screening as part of Journeys Festival International 2019, which celebrates the creative talent of exceptional refugee and asylum seeker artists and shares the refugee experience through art.
