We know all too well the plight of refugees in recent months. Tragic stories in the media of people – from children to elders – losing their lives trying to escape horrors at home. There has been an outpouring of support across Europe. And a strong message to our governments to do more.
But what does it mean for us here in Cardiff, a city where refugees and asylum seekers are already part of our community? What connections can we make with communities on our doorstep?
This pop-up film event is a chance for Cardiff communities and asylum seeker and refugee communities to meet – share food, watch a film and get to know each other more.
The event is a mixed family screening – men, women and children all welcome!
A Laotian family are forced to leave their village to make way for a new dam. The film follows the story of young Ahlo, who has always been blamed for the family’s misfortunes. Determined to prove he’s not cursed, he decides to win their respect in a truly remarkable way. A touching and uplifting film for all the family!
