Event description

Description

King’s Legal Clinic will be hosting a film screening of the documentary ‘The Longest Run’ directed by Marianna Economou.

The film showcases the lives of two underage refugees, Jasim and Alsaleh, in a Greek prison. With unique access in the juvenile prison and court room, the film follows the two friends closely while in custody, during the trial and after the verdict, through a narrative of suspense which reveals how youngsters are forced to transport migrants cross the border to Greece while the smugglers stay behind and continue their job uninterrupted.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion including speakers from Refugee Legal Support (RLS-Athens) who have been providing free legal support to refugees and unaccompanied minors in Athens since April 2017.
