What happens to African migrants once granted political refugee status? In Turin, a northern Italian city, an abandoned clinic has been squatted by more than 200 refugees since December 2008. Khaled, Shukri and Ali have been travelling through this hell in order to arrive in Italy. Three emblematic characters guide us through a story that reveals, intimately, a collective history, an emblematic tale of all European countries today and their respective immigration policies and the changes occurring in the social fabric of European cities. (Winner RAI Film Prize 2011)

Organised by the Royal Anthropological Institute’s Film Committee and SOAS Department of Anthropology and Sociology
