Migration and exile double bill, in collaboration with the Royal Anthropological Institute Film Festival and Oxford Brookes Anthropology courses.

Winner of the Wiley Blackwell Student Film Prize at the RAI Festival of Ethnographic Film, 2015 Leaving Greece tells the very personal story of three young Afghan refugees: Hossein, Reza and Kaka, who are stranded in Greece and have tried for years to enter Europe. A film about friendship and love – and the contradictory European refugee policy.

A portrait of Syrian refugee Mohammed, a 12-year-old shoe shine boy, Boya Boya (Shine Shine) looks at the reality of the growing population of urban refugees from a child’s point of view.

With an audience Q&A with Leaving Greece Director Anna Brass.
