Its Refugee Week

In the midst of General Elections, Terror attacks and the Grenfell Fire its easy to forget that its actually refugee week.

I am very concerned about the way that the UK handles refugees and migrants, the Brexit poll seems only to have exacerbated the issue.

Last year I went to the Jungle Refugee camp and saw for myself how desperate migrants are to get into the UK and I heard for myself the terrible stories they told about why they left their countries to try and come to the UK.

The Migration Museum, where my film is exhibited, is a good place for us to start our understanding of the migrants’ stories. I recommend a visit.

In the meantime, here is a version of my film, made at the Migration Museum, I Too Am Human and below that links to the photos that I took in Calais.
