Organised by Dr Maria Rovisco from the Department of Media and Communication, the event will be focused around Newcastle- based visual artist and filmmaker Isabel Lima’s film Broken Chords Can Sing a Little – Episode 1: The Birds.

The film addresses the ‘migration crisis’ in general and the experience of displacement by Middlesbrough-based asylum seekers and refugees in particular. The film includes scenes inspired by Aristophanes’ classical theatrical comedy "The Birds", acted by asylum seekers and refugees who wear bird masks to conceal their identities.

The event will take place at Leicester’s Upstairs at the Western pub and theatre- starting at 6.30pm with a film screening followed by an open discussion, where the panellists and the audience will be invited to respond to the concerns raised by the film.
