Campsfield House is an immigration removal centre in Oxfordshire, UK. In this centre people are held against their will, indefinitely, without trial or charge.
This documentary aims to tackle the lack of public engagement with the reality of immigration detention. By speaking with people about their personal experiences of Campsfield, we look behind the statistics that characterise mainstream media and politicians’ reports on immigration.
We aim to give an impression of the many ways people have responded to the existence of immigration detention centres in this country, and to think about some of the ways in which we can react. To do this, we have spoken to campaign groups and charities, academics and lawyers. Watch this space for more videos and information about Campsfield House.
