Espoir Voyage | Michel Zongo | Burkina Faso | 2011 | 80 min

In Espoir Voyage, Burkinabe director Michel Zongo sets off on a personal journey in search of traces of his older brother Joanny. Like many others, Joanny left his village at the age of 14 to go and earn money for his family working on plantations in the Ivory Coast. Nobody had heard from him since he left. Many years later, Joanny’s family received a message saying he had died. How had he lived? Why did he die? Via his brother’s life story, Zongo tells the story of migration within Africa and reflects on its consequences: the solidarity and conflicts between migrant workers and the concern of the families left behind.

Special Flight | Fernand Melgar | France | 2011 | 52 min

Special Flight is a dramatic account of the plight of undocumented foreigners at the Frambois detention center in Geneva, Switzerland, and of the wardens who struggle to reconcile humane values with the harsh realities of a strict deportation system. The 25 Frambois inmates featured are among the thousands of asylum seekers and illegal immigrants imprisoned without charge or trial and facing deportation to their native countries, where they fear repression or even death. The film, made in Switzerland, is a heart-wrenching exposé of the contradictions between the country’s compassionate social policies and the intractability of its immigration laws.

January 20th 22:30 GMT

Uncertain Future |  Eddy Munyaneza | Burundi | 2018 | 70 min

Burundi, April 2015. Demonstrations against Pierre Nkurunziza’s third term bring thousands of people to the streets of Bujumbura. A failed coup d’état further plunges the country into repression and violence. Whole families are fleeing the country. Eddy, director, films the demonstrations, then the first executions and the victims. His artistic and social commitment dislocates his family, who decides to leave without him. Faced with the violence that is gaining ground, he is eventually also forced to flee his country. As a refugee in Senegal, far from his family, he begins an internal journey caught in the images and memories of the crisis that shakes Burundi. Nine months later, he goes in search of his children in Rwanda. On both sides of the border, he meets those who stayed in Burundi or chose the path of exile. Their stories, often fragmentary and brutal, show great uncertainty.

January 27th 22:30 GMT

 

Cinema Dadaab |  Kati Juurus | Kenya | 2018 | 58 min
Dadaab is a dreamlike place forgotten by the rest of the world: a huge refugee camp on Kenya’s border to  Somalia. The refugees cannot leave, but they let their  minds escape by going to the cinema to watch films  and to dream of other countries
