Refugee camps lead to unexpected challenges, some surmountable, others defeating. Here we witness these and also screen a world premiere

“Lost and found”
Director: Orlando von Einsiedel This National Geographic film follows daily life in the world’s largest refugee camp where daily people of all ages get lost. The film follows Kamal Hussein, a Rohingya refugee, who has dedicated his life to reuniting children with their parents. Missing children are his mission. 22 minutes

“Amina my sister”
Director: Patrick Bodenham The personal story of a family of Rohingya refugees from persecution in Myanmar into the world's newest and largest refugee camp. 18 minutes

Director: Shahryar Ahadi On the abandoned baseball field of the 2004 Olympic Games, 500 refugees live in UNCHR tents. While populist parties speak worldwide of the downfall of Western civilization, the Christian West, mass rape, terrorism or exploitation of their social systems, the refugees live in this abandoned stadium until they get their papers. One of these, a 78-year old English teacher from Afghanistan manages to live with dignity in his own way. 15 minutes

AND the world premiere of
“Home Stream”
Director: Giulia Gandini Giulia Gandini won the 2018 #TweetaPitch competition organised by the We The Peoples film festival. She used her £500 bursary to make a film about the life of homeless people. After rebuffs by several, she met Lavane Blackham, homeless for a year and a half. Giulia gave her a phone for three days to tell her story. Giulia received help also from BFI Future Film. She will speak about her films after the screening. 9 minutes
