I am Kuba

When their family business goes bankrupt Kuba and Mikołaj’s parents are forced to leave Poland to find work abroad. Kuba and Mikolaj are staying behind in Poland until their parents find a solution to their problems. Kuba’s story is also the story of modern Europe. It is estimated that there are more than a million euro-orphans in Eastern Europe, who are left behind by parents forced to move to Western Europe to find work. I am Kuba is an intimate film about the human cost of the free movement of labour, told from a child’s perspective.

For Ailsa

For Ailsa is a portrait of Professor Ailsa McKay, a feminist economist, who worked with others to evidence and articulate a radical economic model that recognises all work, paid and unpaid. Ailsa died on the 5th March 2014. This short film set out to record the impression Ailsa made on those who hardly knew nor worked with her, but who were captivated by her vision after hearing her speak.

Ima Jackson, who co-produced the film, will be present at the screening and will talk about links between Ailsa’s work, especially in terms of the impact she made on policy and practice, and GRAMNet’s focus on migration, asylum and refugee issues.

Screenings are free of charge and everyone is welcome.  To guarantee a seat, tickets can be booked by visiting the CCA website:  Tickets must be collected from the CCA Box Office by 5.45pm, otherwise they will be released back into the system.
