Migration & Displacement Film Screening: District Zero
7.30pm. £8. All proceeds go to Phone Credit for Refugees and Displaced Peoples. Please bring any unwanted phones for donation.
Following our screening of Michael Winterbottom's In This World, we continue to shine a light on the plight of displaced people across the world.
District Zero follows the story of a Syrian refugee, Maamun Al-Wadi, who runs a small mobile shop in Zaatari, repairing phones, charging up batteries and restoring the only connections his neighbors in the camp still have with Syria.
People from all over the camp come to his shop and through each customer we see the contents of their memory cards: their past lives in Syria (happiness, daily routine and family life) as well as the war, destruction, fear and flight.
The documentary was produced by Arena Comunicación and Txalap.art, with the support of Oxfam and ECHO.
The film was directed by Pablo Iraburu, Jorge Fernández and Pablo Tosco. It also had the collaboration of the music label Alia Vox, with Jordi Savall as musical director.
The screening will be preceded a short talk by some of the Phone Credit for Refugees and Displaced Peoples team.
