GRAMNet / BEMIS film screening for Refugee Week of Samir Mehanovic’s ‘THROUGH OUR EYES’ documentary (2018).

Gilmorehill Centre, University of Glasgow,  9 University Avenue Andrew Stewart Cinema Glasgow G12 8QQ

Filmed over three years, Samir Mehanovic’s emotive documentary gives a fresh and personal insight into the human catastrophe of the Syrian conflict. A Muslim refugee himself, Mehanovic fled Bosnia in the 1990s and settled in the UK. Drawing on his own experience of claiming asylum, he travels to meet Syrian refugees in their new countries of exile, to further understand the struggles of families fleeing their homes. Featuring music written and performed by refugees, Through Our Eyes is a vivid examination of the consequences of war and displacement.
