Bristol No Borders as part of its popular Cafe/Cinema Night Presents: “Illegal” by Olivier Masset-Depasse
Kebele, 14 Robertson Road, Bristol. BS5 0JY
Tania, a young Russian woman who lives illegally in Belgium with her 13-year-old son Ivan. Constantly on her guard, she dreads police checks until the day she is arrested. Mother and son are separated and Tania is placed in a detention center. She will do anything to be reunited with her son but won’t manage to avoid threats of deportation. Written by Hannelore Goossens
“A taut and powerful movie that might have easily been titled “Nobody is Illegal” given its courageous stance against the kind of xenophobia generated by a capitalist system in decline.”
Vegan Hotdogs, Popcorn & Mulled Cider/Apple Juice available from 7pm
Discussion after film, with contributions from Bristol Hospitality Network & Bristol Refugee Rights.
