The Invisible City [Kakuma] documentary film screening

Hear directly from a refugee panel about their experiences.

When: June 20, 2018 at 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Where: Byrne Creek Community School, 7777 18th Street, Burnaby, BC

KAKUMA is one of the biggest refugee camps, built in the middle of the Turkana desert (Kenya). The Filmmaker Lieven Corthouts decided to stay in one of the toughest places on earth and make this camp his home. While filming his friends for more than 4 years, he unveils the accomplishments of these strong, smart children and the true dynamics of a refugee camp. Can KAKUMA really offer a future? Or is it just a waiting room, where the only option is to plan your journey to Europe?
