Free Film Screening: Life in a Greek Refugee Camp

Click here to book

In 2016 governments within the EU closed their borders, leaving almost 60,000 refugees stranded in Greece. Faced with hosting the refugees, the Greek Government decided to reopen a number of closed-down army camps as temporary residences and called on the army to set up and manage the camps.

The film produced by Tim Kelly, Lecturer at the University of Coventry and writer and director of a number of award-winning short films, explores the role of the army and NGOs in organizing the camp, the daily lives of the refugees and the evolving relationship between the locals and their new neighbours. Director: Yiannis Koufonikos, Writer: Christy Kelly.

The School of Education and Professional Development will be hosting a screening of the short 45 minute film with a Q&A with Tim Kelly at the end.

I’M ALL RIGHT JACK

Winning BAFTA’s for Best British Screenplay and Best British Actor (Peter Sellers), I’m All Right Jack is social satire film about management and labour relations. A naive aristocrat in search of a profit becomes caught up in the struggles between his profit minded uncle and the union. Considered to be the best of John and Roy Boulting’s social satires and starring some of the all time British greats, this film is not to be missed.
