FILM AND REFUGEES
11.15am-12.45pm – 9 FEBRUARY 2017
Hassan Akkad is an English teacher and photographer from Damascus, Syria. Hassan is one of the million people who arrived in Europe in 2015. He shares a story and experience of many refugees fleeing conflict, a story that we hear reports of on the news but that the majority of people have no experience of. Hassan has told this story in a ground-breaking way. Having filmed his entire Journey on a GoPro camera, his footage and story were part of the BBC 2 documentary Exodus: Our Journey to Europe.
