KHRP to participate in a discussion panel at Migrant Rights Network screening of 'Son of Babylon' as part of Refugee Week


On June 21st 2011, KHRP will take part in a discussion panel as part of a Refugee Week screening event for the film 'Son of Babylon', directed by Mohamad Ad Diriadji. The film tells the story of a young boy, Ahmad, and his grandmother as they travel in search of Ahmad's missing father. Set in post-invasion Iraq in 2003 the film follows the pair along dusty, battered roads from desert plains to the mountains of Kurdistan, where the travelers meet migrants caught up in the terror and destruction wrought by tyranny and war.

The panel will be chaired by former MP and active refugee campaigner Neil Gerard, and joining KHRP on the panel will be immigration lawyer Steve Symonds and Kurdish documentary film-maker Karzan Sherabayani. KHRP will bring to the panel experience of the Kurdish regions and the problems facing those living there, especially the situation of Internally Displaced Persons and refugees who have fled conflict and insecurity.

It is a pleasure for KHRP to be able to contribute to events such as the screening of 'Son of Babylon', and to be able to work with other organisations such as Migrant Rights Network. This reflects KHRP's commitment to human rights and their protection not just within the regions that we work, but internationally, standing alongside the rest of the NGO community” said Rachel Bernu, KHRP Managing Director.

The screening and discussion panel takes place from 1800-2100 on Tuesday 21st June 2011 at the BFI Southbank, London SE1 8XT.

Tickets are £6.50 and can be purchased from the BFI Website.
