We will be screening the film Precarious Trajectories, followed by a discussion with the director, Simon Parker, on Monday 19th June from 7:30 to 9 at the Friends Meeting House, 25 Clarendon Street, Nottingham, NG1 5JD. All are welcome.
The film is set on location in Libya, Italy and Greece during 2015-2016, at the height of the Mediterranean migration crisis. It focuses on the perilous sea crossings that hundreds of thousands of refugees have undertaken in recent years in order to arrive at what they hope will be the safer shores of Europe through the eyes of Ruha from Syria and Ahmed from Somalia.
The film itself is 35 minutes, to be followed by a discussion led by the director, Simon Parker. It is free, but it will be helpful to know numbers, so please book tickets at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/precarioustrajectories-film-and-discussion-tickets-35013496310
