Time: 8:00 PM
As we continue to be inspired and challenged to See Differently, we’ll be joining together to watch and discuss the film LIFE JACKET.
LIFE JACKET is a powerful award winning documentary that takes us in journey through the most traumatic times in the lives of the refugees. From surviving the war to the crossing of the Aegean Sea trusting a simple life jacket to keep them safe and hoping to reach a safer future. Little they know that they will end up in Moria Camp and live a different kind of ongoing trauma.
LIFE JACKET delivers the voices and screams of the refugees as they request their simple human rights; to be treated with respect and dignity, to have better living conditions and to get the education they missed.
