With support from Between the Borders magazine and the L15 Projector and Cinema Co-operative, this double-bill presents two accounts of migration. Grass: A Nation’s Battle for Life is a documentary that portrays the Bakhtian people of Iran travel with their herd to the grasslands. Salam Neighbour is filmed inside a refugee camp on the Syrian border, 90 years later. Together, these two films investigate the difference in rights across history. The screening is a response to the difficult situation that migrants and refugees currently face, and to the international scope of the Biennial.
Between the Borders are a collective of people with and without citizenship in the UK, who produce diverse publications and events.
