Blue Moment – Free educational film about seeking asylum

Blue Moment was devised by Risky Things theatre and film, with the Refugee Therapy Centre in London, and in consultation with Refugee Action in York and Solace in Leeds. This film of resilience and solidarity uncovers the mystery of a young woman from Africa who has arrived in Britain after being persecuted in her own country. Alongside her story are the perspectives of the therapist who helps her overcome her torture-trauma, and a local bus-driver who supports her while she is vulnerable to suspicion and abuse, as she moves through the challenging asylum process, accused of terrorism.

This film is a Free Educational Resource you may view here, download from their Vimeo site here or order a DVD copy from [email protected]  or Concord Media.  Please let Risky Things know how you use it and how many view it at the email above, as this information is required by their funders.
