Take One Action Film Festival

Thu 15 September — Sun 25 September 2016

Original Title: Et hjem i verden
Dir. Andreas Koefoed, Denmark, 2015, 58min

An intimate and poignant look at a school for refugee children in Denmark.

Shot over the course of a year in a Danish school run by the Red Cross, At Home in the World offers a moving glimpse into the lives of five children struggling to learn Danish while adjusting to life in new surroundings. As they await the outcome of their family’s asylum claims, some of the children thrive and build friendships despite their traumatic pasts; others have difficulty containing their fears and sense of alienation.

With astonishing restraint, the film captures its young protagonists’ extraordinary resilience and fragility – while quietly paying tribute to their Danish teachers’ remarkable humanity.

With short films Fences (Natalia Krawczuk, Poland, 2015, 6min55sec), The Girl, Whose Shadow Reflects the Moon (Walaa Al Alawi, Jordan, 2015, 5min) and I am not afraid of the Soldiers (Ik Ben Niet Bang voor de Soldaten) (Rinske Bosch, Netherlands, 2015, 20min12sec)

Stay with us after the film for inspiring conversations and opportunities for effective personal action. We will be joined by Lisa Stewart, Campaigns and Communications Manager (Oxfam Scotland), representatives from the Scottish Refugee Council and Selina Hales, founder of Refuweegee.

Presented in association with Oxfam Scotland.
