A joint event hosted by the Extra Legal Governance Institute (EXLEGI), Department of Sociology and Refugee Studies Centre
Acclaimed documentary film maker James Bluemel will show clips from and talk about his BAFTA winning BBC and PBS documentary series Exodus: Our Journey to Europe. The production team gave cameraphones to people attempting to reach Europe, escaping war, poverty or persecution. They filmed where regular film crews could not go: on the inflatable dinghies crossing from Turkey to Greece, in the back of lorries entering the Eurotunnel, or in open trucks driven by people smugglers across the Sahara. The result is a terrifyingly intimate yet uniquely epic portrait of the biggest movement of people that Europe has seen since World War Two.
