World Refugee Day Special Screening: In Search of My Home
2010 | Documentary | India | 30 min | FREE
Directed by Rintu Thomas & Sushmit Ghosh
In the world’s largest democracy, live thousands of men, women and children with lost homes and forgotten names. Sheltering one of the largest refugee populations in the world, India still lacks a comprehensive domestic refugee law, that could guarantee them their basic human needs and a life of dignity.
In Search of My Home is a journey with a Burmese and an Afghan refugee family, as it explores the complexities in their everyday battle for survival.
Weaving together their emotional stories of hope and despair, love and loss, the film tells a story that is absent from India’s collective conscience and its mainstream media.
This 30 minute film is directed by Rintu Thomas & Sushmit Ghosh, and produced by the Centre for Communication & Development Studies in India.
Sinema Old School will be presenting two special screenings of this film on its release date, World Refugee Day. Admission is free of charge, so mark your calendars and catch this incredibly touching documentary with us.
Date: 20 June 2010, World Refugee Day
