On Our Doorstep (2020) | Directed by Thomas Laurance, 90 mins
On Our Doorstep delves deep into an area of the refugee crisis that rarely reached the press. The film is a behind-the-scenes look at the extraordinary grassroots movement that rose up to aid the refugees in Calais, and the community that sprang up there, before it was forcefully demolished.
The panel discussion after the screening will be moderated by Dr Mina Stanikic; Mina will be talking to On Our Doorstep director Tom Laurance, Dr Apostolos Veizis, Executive Director INTERSOS and Dr Jamilah Sherally, former Medical Coordinator Boat Refugee Foundation.
A Quiet Inquisition (2014) | Directed by Holen Kahn and Alessandra Zeka, 65 mins
At a public hospital in Nicaragua, Dr Carla Cerrato, obstetrician-gynaecologist, struggles with her conscience as she contends with the harrowing implications of a new law that prevents the termination of any pregnancy, even when a woman’s life is at stake.
The panel discussion after the screening will be moderated by Dr Mina Stanikic; Mina will be joined by Holen Kahn, co-director A Quiet Inquisition; Dee Redwine, Vice President and Regional Director Latin America Program, Planned Parenthood Global; Dr Atina Krajewska, human rights lawyer; and Ana Muñoz Padros, journalist.
Unseen Enemy (2017) | Directed by Janet Tobias, 98 mins
Unseen Enemy is an essential exploration of the reasons why we are experiencing a rash of diseases that were once only outbreaks, but have now become full-blown epidemics. This increased risk that we face, and the ways society and individuals can work together to reduce that risk, are demonstrated through the case studies of three epidemics: Ebola, influenza and Zika.
Thank You for the Rain (2017) | Directed by Julia Dahr, 87 mins
Since 2012, Kisilu, a smallholder farmer in Kenya, has used his camera to capture the life of his family, his village, and the impacts of climate change. Kisilu and Norwegian filmmaker Julia Dahr's relationship takes on a remarkable twist, shedding a powerful light on the climate justice movement and the vastly different worlds they represent.
