Film screening and discussion
'Precarious Trajectories: voices from the Mediterranean migration crisis'
With Simon Parker, migration researcher and director of Precarious Trajectories
When: Tuesday 11 April, 7.30pm
Where: Oxford Town Hall, St Aldate's, Oxford OX1 1BX
Precarious Trajectories is a powerful film about the journeys that migrants are forced to make to cross the Mediterranean, told from the perspectives of the migrants themselves.
The film was made during the height of the 'migrant crisis' in 2015-16 and was shot in Libya, Italy and Greece.
As well as a personal look at the stories of migrants, Precarious Trajectories highlights the mechanisms used by European states and corporations to patrol their borders, often to deadly effect.
The film will be followed by a discussion with Simon Parker — Senior Lecturer in Politics at the University of York and the lead researcher behind the Precarious Trajectories project.
Organised by Global Justice Oxford.
