UN in your language

United Nations in partnership with UNHCR and Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe invites you to the screening of
to commemorate World Refugee Day
on Wednesday 15 June, at 6:30 pm

Moving to Mars Poster

Moving to Mars charts the epic journey made my two Burmese families from a vast refugee camp in the Thai/Burma border to their new homes in the UK. At times hilarious, at times emotional, their travels provide a fascinating and unique insight not only into the effects of migration, but also into one of the most important current political crises: Burma.

The film will be followed by a Q&A with:

Volker Gerdesmeier- Director of Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe
Melita Sunjic- UNHCR Brussels
Eleanor Dean- Production Assistant on the film, and now working for Refugee Action
with Carlos Jimenez from UNRIC as Moderator
The film is in English and Burmese with English subtitles and has a runtime of 90 min.
