This film screening is being presented by The Institute for the Study of Human Rights. the Committee on Forced Migration, and the European Institute. The film is set in the summer of 2016, in Paris, when refugees are camping in the Stalingrad district while waiting to regularize their situation.
Refugees arriving from Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia and Afghanistan
have no other choice than to sleep in the streets. Paris- based filmmaker Hind Meddeb witnessed the French state’s violence against these new immigrants and decided to film their daily life, marred by police raids, massive arrests, and closed immigration offices. She made this film to share her experience of their side of the story.
Introduction and post-film discussion with Hind Meddeb
