Screening of "Calais Children: A Case to Answer" - With Film Director Q&A

The IH Cinema will be screening documentary, "Calais Children: A Case to Answer". This will be followed by a guest appearance from the director, Prof Sue Clayton, and a Q&A.

This award-winning documentary follows the scandal of what happened to the almost 2000 lone asylum-seeking children who were in the Calais Jungle as it burned down last year. Most of them had a strong claim to UK protection. Calais children tells what happened to them over the following year, what they’ve had to go through, and the ongoing fight to get them to safety.

This film was made not only as a movie for people to watch, but also as a witness statement to take to the UK courts. It has been submitted as part of a challenge to the Home Office over its treatment of child refugees, and the unfair procedures adopted when the Home Office was deciding which children could come to the UK. If the case succeeds – the decision will be known soon - it could have implications for thousands of other child asylum seekers hoping to reach the UK under the Dubs amendment.

The screening will be followed by Q&A with the director Sue Clayton, who is eager to talk about the film, current legal developments, children’s rights, the UK immigration law, the refugee crisis, representation of refugees and the power of documentaries to change the world.
