Movies that Matter: Refugees, who needs them?
June 23, 2015 /// 00:00
Amnesty Volunteers Amsterdam invite you to a special Movies That Matter screening with an introductory speaker to mark World Refugee Day.The movie, Refugees, who needs them?” shot in 2012, takes a close look at the treatment of and attitude towards refugees here in the Netherlands, and is featured as part of our Movies that Matter film series.
As the debate on immigration rages across the Netherlands and Europe, the Dutch government invites some refugees in. Five of these invited refugees wonder if the continent that reluctantly accepted them is actually involved in creating the conditions that made them flee in the first place. Refugees: Who Needs Them?, shot over the course of 2011, is an entertaining, often humorous and ultimately moving film experience on new arrivals from Libya, Ethiopia, China and Bhutan. 75min, tickets 4 Euros each.
