FAREWELL MY HOMELAND
"Farewell My Homeland is about the flight of peoples around the world from their homes and homeland to escape wars, ethnic cleansing and race-faith-gender based systemic discrimination and violence. The documentary material covers events of forced migration from the beginning of the twentieth century until the present day. I hope to trigger viewer’s awareness and empathy for the plight of the refugees."
