16 Aug 2022
Film Screening and Q&A
As climate change continues to displace communities globally, The Migration Blanket – Climate Solidarity film shows how women’s lives are being affected. The film is also a show of solidarity between girls and women in the UK and the Commonwealth nations, calling for a greener planet where nobody is left behind and an end to violence against women. Described by politicians as a ‘powerful film’ the short features over 400 pieces of unique artwork created during the pandemic in extraordinary circumstances. Refugee and migrant women living in camps, orphanages and other temporary accommodation are given a voice, as are migrant and refugee women from the UK, who worked closely with award-winning British Artist and Activist and filmmaker, Salma Zulfiqar on the film project.
Actor Michael Simkins (The Crown) will open the screening event.
A Q&A with filmmaker Salma Zulfiqar will follow the screening.
