Film and Debate: Refugees Who Needs Them?
The rhetoric against immigrants and refugees tightens in the Netherlands. Into this world come a group few know of: “resettled” refugees, invited by the Dutch government, as well as the US born filmmaker, Miles Roston. For a year, he follows the dramatic story of five: Fathi an activist escaping death threats from Gaddafi, Fasil – an Ethiopian journalist sentenced to life for condemning fraudulent elections, Li Zhu – a Falun Gong Buddhist, and Jigme and Renuka from Bhutan. After they barely escape their own governments, they find they’re unwanted by governments in Europe as well. Together they embark on a dramatic search to find out whether they are wanted or even needed. Refugees: Who Needs Them? is a cinematic, gripping, and humorous look into the lives of refugees – and – ourselves.
