Green Border – film screening by Modern Films

As part of Bristol Refugee Festival, Modern Films is happy to announce the screening of Green Border, from three-times Oscar-nominated Polish film director Agnieszka Holland.

In the treacherous and swampy forests that make up the so-called “green border” between Belarus and Poland, refugees from the Middle East and Africa trying to reach the European Union are trapped in a geopolitical crisis engineered by Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko.

In an attempt to provoke Europe, refugees are lured to the border by propaganda promising easy passage to the EU.

Pawns in this hidden war, the lives of Julia, a newly minted activist who has given up her comfortable life, Jan, a young border guard, and a Syrian family, intertwine.

The film  is 18-rated and will be screened on Saturday 22 June 2024 at 5:30pm, at the Watershed cinema.

Free tickets for refugees and asylum seekers.
