Moving to Mars

A new documentary film, ‘Moving to Mars’, tells the story of two families who came to Sheffield as refugees from Burma, through the UN Gateway Protection programme.

The film will have its world premiere at the international DocFest in Sheffield on 4th November, but you can watch some short clips from the film here.

The film-makers are hoping to work with City of Sanctuary groups to hold screenings and discussions at public meetings and in schools around the country, to help local audiences to gain an insight into the experience of refugees and promoting the vision of City of Sanctuary.

The film will also be a great resource for promoting the Gateway resettlement programme, and hopefully encouraging more towns and cities to offer a home and a future to people who are trapped in permanent refugee camps in developing countries.
