IMG_1579

Queueing in light rain is not everyone’s idea of fun, but last night [Tues 1st Dec] over one hundred people made the effort IMG_1584 to come and watch this challenging film and to hear Director Chris Cotter IMG_1586 tell the story of how he came to make it. From USA to Ethiopia where the refugee camps are was a big step for the small team who set out with the intention of ensuring this peoples’ tragic story got told.

To get a sense of the film visit their website http://www.theeritreanexodus.com/ and watch the trailer.

Many thanks to Dora Rebelo, PAFRAS mental health worker for her efforts to make the screening of the film happen, to Hyde Park Picture House for hosting us and to everyone else who helped in any way!
