Unsettled: Seeking Refuge in America

Friday 27 Nov 2020 - 10:30am to Saturday 28 Nov 2020 - 12:00pm

Unsettled: Seeking Refuge In America is a powerful examination of the global refugee crisis from the overlooked perspective of LGBT asylum seekers.

Unsettled follows four brave individuals from Africa and the Middle East who have fled homophobic violence sanctioned by their home countries and families of origin. Beginning anew, Cheyenne and Mari (Angolan), Subhi (Syrian), and Junior (Congolese) face immense barriers to securing work, housing, and legal assistance. Fighting isolation and depression, they share stories that form an unflinching picture of nearly insurmountable challenges.

'This is truly an aspiring story bringing awareness to serious global issues we still have surrounding those who do not identify as straight. We definitely have a long way to go but as more and more stories are being told I feel we are going in the right direction.' - Malika Harris, Irish Film Critic
