Screening of the film The Good Lie, 25 August 2015, Bratislava

30 September 2015

EMN prepared for the public the Slovak premiere of the Holywood film The Good Lie about the Sudanese refugees resettled to the United States of America. The film which was inspired by true stories of the “Lost Boys of Sudan” was on 25 August attended by more than 150 people. The film screening was launched by Zuzana Vatráľová, Head of the IOM Office in the Slovak Republic.

About the film:

A group of young refugees orphaned by the civil war in Sudan that began in 1983 are given a chance to resettle in the United States from a Kenyan refugee camp where they have lived for 13 years. After arriving in Kansas City, Missouri, their encounter with an employment agency counsellor forever changes all of their lives.

The event was organised within the EMN Educational Seminar “Irregular Migration – Borders and Human Rights” held in Bratislava on 25 – 27 August 2015. More information about the seminar is available here.
