Skep Arts presents a screening of ‘Asylum’ and ‘The Journey’ at The Skep.
Friday 29th April, 2022
Two short films that tackle the subject of migration with narrative skill, humanity and imaginative power. The directors of both films will attend the screening and will be happy to take questions from the audience.
ASYLUM by Neil Mcenery-West
Asylum uses Rolvenden as one of its locations. It tells the simple but powerful story of a British woman who comes across the unconscious body of a migrant on a beach in Kent. It is a poignant and powerful depiction of two women whose lives intersect. 12 mins.
THE JOURNEY by Ridy Wasolua
Ridy was placed in a British detention camp for migrants when he was 18 years old. His status as a British citizen was in question. During his confinement, Ridy got to know other inmates, and to hear about their lives. The Journey is his telling of the true story of one man’s dangerous and ill-fated voyage from Africa to the UK. 12 mins.
