As part of Refugee Week, the Diocese of Canterbury’s Communities and Partnerships Framework is hosting a screening of the award-winning documentary – Evaporating Borders.
A visual essay in five parts, Evaporating Borders is told through a series of vignettes that explore the lives of asylum seekers and political refugees on the island of Cyprus. Cyprus is one of the easiest points of entry into Europe. Through the microcosm of the current situation in Cyprus, the film explores tolerance and immigration practices throughout Europe and the Western world—where migrating populations have become subject to a variety of human rights abuses. The film looks at what it means to be displaced and examines the idea of belonging and notions of diaspora, exile, and migration.
There will be a post-show discussion facilitated by the Diocese of Canterbury
