In "The Old Oak," witness the struggles of a resilient mining community facing unexpected challenges when Syrian refugees arrive in their village, sparking tensions and forging unlikely connections between the locals and newcomers, portrayed in a deeply moving drama about fragility, hope, and the power of understanding. Join us for a screening of this moving film, followed by a panel discussion featuring representatives from Oxford organizations dedicated to refugee integration, as we ask the question, how can we stand in solidarity with refugees and asylum seekers in our community?
