Isabel Lima’s film addresses the migration crisis in general and the experience of displacement by Middlesbrough-based asylum seekers and refugees in particular.

The University of East Anglia hosts a festival ‘losing and finding home: refugee history, memory and culture’. These events are spread over various dates (between 17th – 25th November), times, and locations in East Anglia.

We hope to challenge the rhetoric that reduces migrants to simplistic categories: active enemies or passive victims.
