I took part in a panel discussion following the screening of Wojciech Smarzowski’s ‘Rose’ as part of Refugee Week at BFI Southbank, London, June 18th.
The screening was organised by David Somerset of the BFI as a complement to Refugee Week: it explores the universal condition of war which remains the main cause of refugees. It also marks a period of history that gave rise to the 1951 Convention relating to Refugee Status.
The other members of the panel are Roland Schillin (UNHCR, UK representative), and Anita Prażmowska (historian). Chair: Tim Finch (Dir. Comms IPPR, Pol. Journalist)
Camera was Ace Ashun, who had to shoot from a poor position due to health and safety regulations at the National Film Theatre.
