Event description

Description

Five incredibly important documentaries, all telling very different stories but with one common and worrying theme. This is a session you definitely won't want to miss.


Living In Between

Nefeli Oikonomou Pantzou | Czech Republic | 9 mins | 2016 *WORLD PREMIERE*

Czech w English subtitles

At the moment the number of homeless people in Czech Republic is approximately 68.500, while 9.500 out of them live in Prague. This documentary focuses on the public spaces homeless people appropriate and transform into private ones.


Camrex

Mark Chapman | UK | 14 mins | 2016

Camrex House is a notorious homeless hostel that for 40 years has upheld a fearsome reputation. Its skewed, in-house morality perpetuated by men with complex histories. Based on interviews with hostel residents, CAMREX constructs a series of unflinchingly visceral sequences that reveal a hidden world of untold stories.

*INTERMISSION*



Their Land, Our Home

Ryan Powell | UK | 29 mins | 2016 *LONDON PREMIERE*

Portuguese w English subtitles

Weaving legend and reality, ‘Their Land, Our Home’ is a snapshot of the final days of the neighbourhood of Santa Filomena, one of Portugal’s last shantytowns. The film gives voice to those whose homes are being destroyed through the government's outdated slum clearance program.

Refugee Blues

Stephen Bookas & Tristan Daws | USA | 6 mins | 2016

Set to the verses of W.H. Auden's 1939 poem, “Refugee Blues” charts a day in 'the jungle', the refugee camp outside Calais. More intimate and unlike much of what has been seen in the mass media, this documentary poem counterpoints the camp’s harsh reality of frequent clashes with the French riot police with its inhabitants’ longing for a better future.

Yarl's Wood

How do you make a film about detained women that your government doesn’t want you to see.
