Ciné-ONU Brussels, Vienna and Geneva invited you to the online screening of ‘Wake Up On Mars’.
In Sweden, a family from Kosovo faces the rejection of their asylum application. The result is the trauma of the two girls, victims of the “resignation syndrome”, which plunges them into a long coma. Faced with this situation, Furkan, aged 10 and the youngest child in the family, shows incredible resilience and sets out to build a spaceship as a horizon to all possibilities.
The screening was followed by an online panel discussion with:
- Dea Gjinovci, Director of Wake Up On Mars
- Dr. Elisabeth Hultcrantz, Professor emerita, Linköping University
- Peter Ventevogel, Senior Mental Health Officer, UNHCR
- Moderated by Martin Nesirky, Director of UN Information Service, Vienna
