The Invisible City [Kakuma] shows the realities of migration

On 27 September IOM showed the film The Invisible City [Kakuma] at the Humanity House in The Hague. The well-attended screening was followed by a lively public discussion with film maker Lieven Corthouts. A separate screening was organized for clearly impressed 15-17 year olds from Segbroek College in The Hague. With this Movie&Debate event IOM NL aims to introduce the realities of migration to a wider audience.

Kakuma refugee camp, in north-west Kenya, is the fastest growing city in the region. It is one of the toughest places on earth. Many new arrivals are children sent out of conflict zones by their parents. Film maker Lieven Corthouts made the camp his home for four years. In his film he shows the waiting and expectations of three refugee children and the realities of a refugee camp.

The Movie&Debate event proves to be an excellent platform for the audience to share their thoughts and views on migration. By showing films like The Invisible City [Kakuma] IOM wants to contribute to the contemporary discourse on migration.

The screening took place in view of the Global Migration Film Festival and was made possible through the AMIF project.

IOM the Netherlands is planning to organize more Movie&Debate events in 2018.
