World Premiere: Silence Heard Loud ScreenTalk (Online) Human Rights Watch Film Festival

Thu 17—Fri 25 Mar 2022

In Silence Heard Loud we meet seven individuals from six countries who journeyed to the UK in search of safety—fleeing from war, terrorism, ethnic hatred, persecution, and domestic violence.

But the issues now facing Angela, Janahan, Merwa, Michael, Mohamed, Nirmala, and Selamawit are complex: endless asylum procedures with no permission to work, uncertainty about their futures, and the loneliness of longing for family and home. After many years of integrating into their new local communities and rebuilding their lives, their futures are still under threat.

At any moment, the UK Home Office could force them to leave their lives and the relationships they have forged. This artfully crafted film is a reminder of the struggles facing members of our community, and the continued fight for refugees to find freedom and dignity as they navigate the British asylum system.

Join for a live ScreenTalk with filmmaker Anna Konik, film participant Michael Darko, Enver Solomon, CEO Refugee Council & Yasmine Ahmed, Executive Director UK HRW.
