Leicester Law School screening of documentary on the asylum process, 23 October 2018

Law School film club, Reel Law, screening of documentary Well-Founded Fear

Taking its title from the definition of a refugee in the UN Refugee Convention, Well-Founded Fear analyses the US asylum process by following several asylum seekers and asylum officers through real-life interviews. Offering an unflinching view of the asylum-seeking process, this documentary could not be more topical in light of the ongoing refugee ‘crisis’ in Europe and the Trump administration’s increasingly hostile treatment of people fleeing persecution to seek asylum in the US.

Well-Founded Fear will be of interest to anybody concerned with human rights, immigration, international affairs and issues of global justice.

The screening will be followed by an informal reception. This event is generously sponsored by Howes Percival.

Date and time: Tuesday 23 October, 6pm – 8pm
Film Running Time: 120 minutes
Location: Attenborough Basement, Lecture Theatre 1. Attendees are welcome to stay for a glass of wine and informal chat after the screening 
The event is free and open to all
