Description

"Undocument"

Written and directed by Kyla Simone Bruce and Amin Bakhshian The film follows four journeys from the Middle East to the UK, linking each to a single narrative. Leila stakes all to flee Afghanistan and join her husband in London, give birth and raise their child to read and write, live and think freely. To the family harbouring her in Tehran, these secrets pose a dangerous threat. In Greece, an Iranian mother struggles to maintain her dignity and protect her eight-year-old son. How does he make sense of the uncomfortable mix of fear and awe as he watches their trafficker berate and humiliate the adults? Laura entered the UK illegally before Poland was part of the EU. Now everything's as it should be, until her London-born daughter opens the door to immigration officers with a warrant for her North African partner’s deportation. Ramzi maintains the required distance from his Arab brothers and sisters in his role as courtroom interpreter. Then he witnesses a young boy reaching out to touch his mother – a face on the courtroom monitor – and is confronted by his own complicity in the institutional processes and procedures that determine the outcome of so many complex human stories. (93 minutes)

Kyla Simone Bruce, co-director, will join the Q and A session following the screening.

"The Orange Tree"

Directed by Sion Evans Berry This short film spends time with independent volunteers on the island of Lesbos, Greece and refugees that have made their way to Piraeus harbour, Athens, Greece from their home countries. Looking at a range of perspectives from local and foreign volunteers to the people who have been displaced from their home countries fleeing various different circumstances, you see and hear an observational portrait of place and people, it gives a snapshot of time in human history. (12 minutes)
