A real refugee crisis - Film and talk on refugees in Kenya

On June 20th 2017, World Refugee Day, the Swedish section of Amnesty International host a joint world premiere screening of the feature length documentary Warehoused (https://warehousedthemovie.com/), together with a talk on what can be done to protect the human rights of refugees living in refugee camps in Kenya and elsewhere.

---

Through intimate portraits of every day life for some of the hundreds of thousands of people living in Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya, the film gives a picture of the situation for people in protracted refugee situations worldwide. Among others, the film follows a journalist in her life and work in the camp and a filmmaker who wants to help young refugees express themselves through film, while he himself is struggling to reunite with his family in the US. 

The film screening is part of an international project where the film will be screening on World Refugee Day at several places around the globe, among them in Nairobi, Kenya, to raise awareness on the situation for millions of people worldwide who live in protracted refugee situations.

The film talk, with a guest from the regional office of Amnesty International in Nairobi, Kenya, will discuss what can be done - on a local, regional and global level - to protect the human rights of people living in refugee camps in Kenya and elsewhere. What can people living in Sweden do to change this situation, and how does it affect us?

When: Tuesday June 20th 2017, 4.30 pm - 7 pm
Where: Bio Rio cinema, Hornstulls Strand 3, Stockholm
The talk is at 4.30 pm - 5.15 pm. The film screening starts at 5.30 pm. Bistro Rio is open during the break.

The film screening and the talk is free of charge.

The film is in English and the talk will be held in English. The film running time is 74 minutes.
