Event Details

Travel: film screening with director Nick Mai

Tuesday 7 November at 7.00pm

Visual Anthropology Series

Nick Mai
France / 2016 / 63 minutes

Joy left Nigeria to help her family after her father’s death. She knew that she was going to sell sex in France, but she was unaware of the degree of exploitation that she would face. With the help of an association she obtains asylum, but to help her family and live her life, she continues selling sex. This documentary ethnofiction was co-written by Nicola Mai and 8 Nigerian women with experiences of migration, sex work and trafficking. Joy is one of several fictional characters embodying their individual and collective experiences. In order to protect their identities these roles are played by non-professional actresses including some of the film’s co-authors.

Nick Mai will speak about the film, which he produced as part of the Emborders art-science project (2014-15) questioning the effectiveness and scope of humanitarian initiatives targeting migrant sex workers and sexual minority asylum seekers.

Nick Mai is Professor of Sociology and Migration Studies at Kingston University, London.
