Film Screening and Fundraiser: Stranger in Paradise

The Bristol Institute for Migration and Mobility Studies (BIMMS) is hosting a migrant and refugee led screening of ‘Stranger in Paradise’, followed by a discussion with Ken Macharia, member of Bristol Refugee Rights 

Kenneth "Ken" Macharia, from Shepton Mallet, Somerset, has had his request for asylum rejected by the Home Office, being detained last week. The judge granted Ken bail and released him. However, he still does not have asylum in the UK, which means he remains under threat of deportation to Kenya by the Home Office.

This event is also an opportunity to support Ken’s petition against his deportation and to raise funds to cover his legal costs. To find out more about the petition and how to contribute, please click here.

Date: 04 December 2018

Time: 18:00-20:00

Location:  Priory Road Complex, Room 2D3

Film synopsis:

In a classroom newly-arrived refugees learn a lesson about multifarious Europe. Operating at the intersection of fiction and documentary, Stranger in Paradise reflects on the power relations between Europeans and refugees in a candid fashion.
