Two short films about immigration, emigration and refugees.
Death of Schengen: Performance/electronic group called HYENAZ have just begun a research/performance/music project called FOREIGN BODIES about migration. Recently while in Hungary recently they documented migrants being pulled off a Czech train and turned it into a short film called Death of Schengen Zone. Followed by a Skype Q&A with the film makers.
Emigrant: Emigration is the act of leaving one’s native country with the intent to settle elsewhere. Mikel, an emigrant to the United Kingdom, has a passion for games. His observations of the world around him and his relationship with his father lead him to create a game that will change the world. He gains inspiration from finding a bottle cap and develops an inclusive game that will inspire all, eventually helping him and his father bond. Followed by a Q&A with the film maker Grant Taylor.
