In the early 2010s, with NGOs being blocked by red tape and a lack of positive action by the British and French governments, an extraordinary grassroots movement sprang up to aid refugees stranded in the Calais ‘Jungle’ camp. This is a behind-the-scenes look at the community that sprang up there before the authorities demolished it, the story of ordinary people navigating the moral dilemmas and grey areas of giving aid to vulnerable people in the face of official apathy or worse. A remarkable and timely film.
A live question and answer session with special guests director Thomas Laurance and Hull Help for Refugees will follow the film.
