(Róża)
dir. Wojtek Smarzowski
With Marcin Dorocinski, Agata Kulesza, Malwina Buss
Running time 90 min, 2011

This powerful, acclaimed film dramatises the value of human rights in a tragic tale of war from a little-known period of Polish history: the post-WW2 persecution of the Masurians, indigenous residents of the region that is now Poland. Screening as a complement to Refugee Week, it explores the universal condition of war which remains the main cause of refugees. It also marks a period of history that gave rise to the 1951 Convention relating to Refugee Status. With special guests and discussion.

There will be an introduction and a panel with the following speakers: Professor Anita Prazmowska, a lecturer at London School of Economics, Tim Finch - Chair, (Dir. Comms IPPR, Political Journalist), Roland Schillin (UNHCR, UK representative) and Mamoun Hassan (writer / filmmaker.)
