Film screening of At Home in the World and talk + Q&A from Freedom from Torture's Survivors Speak Out
“I wanted to find out what it means for these children to tell their stories when they have been on the run and exposed to violence. To investigate what happens now that they have to find a new place in the world and to look at what they do to cope and move on.” Andreas Koefoed
Freedom from Torture North London Supporters Group is proud to host the screening of Andreas Koefoed’s ‘At Home in the World’, a powerfully important and relevant film tracing the steps of five refugee children staying at a Danish Red Cross Asylum school. It bares the question: ‘How do you make yourself ‘at home’ in a new country?’
This will be preceded by a talk from members of Freedom from Torture's incredible Survivors Speak Out team, who will be demonstrating the issues facing torture survivors in the UK today, such as the hindrances faced in making a new home, as well as the ongoing work Freedom from Torture does in rehabilitating them.
All money raised will go towards continuing the work of Freedom from Torture in providing psychological and medical support to survivors of torture in the UK.
There will be plenty of time for drinks, music and chatting (and also the chance to nab some fab vintage and second-hand clothes we will be selling on the side!) from 7pm, before we sit for the talks and film at 8.30pm.
We hope to see you there!
