A special screening of Margreth Olin’s award-winning documentary

Nowhere Home is showing at the Ultimate Picture Palace, Oxford on Tuesday 30 April 2013

Nowhere Home follows the fortunes of a number of young people from Salhus, a Norwegian centre offering temporary residence to unaccompanied asylum-seeking young people as they approach adulthood. While they all hope to remain in Norway, the threat of deportation when they turn 18 – and uncertain futures in countries like Afghanistan or Iraq – hangs over them. A visceral and provocative film, Nowhere Home scrutinises what Human Rights Watch has called one of the ‘major moral dilemmas’ facing Europe today.

There will be an introductory talk at 6.15pm and the screening starts at 6.30pm.

Distributor: Norwegian Film Institute

Year: 2012 / 90m
