Film Club and Refugee Week
We screened two films, Hamsa and On The Bride’s Side documenting the struggle refugees face when searching for a more stable life for themselves and their families. Both pictures were well received and provoked interesting discussion about the distressing journeys many displaced people make on a daily basis.
We were also treated to a musical performance from Afghan musician Elaha Soroor who was accompanied by Peyman Heydarian on the santur. They will be performing at SOAS Saturday 2 July at 7pm if you would like to see them again.
And while Refugee Week may technically be over (20-26 June), there is still time to catch Arthur Laidlaw’s exhibition Razed: Syrian Ruins at gallery@oxo, Oxo Tower Wharf before it closes this Sunday 3 July.
