Invitation Ciné-ONU “Moving to Mars”

Moving to Mars

The United Nations in partnership with Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe invites you to the screening of :

"MOVING TO MARS" to commemorate World Refugee Day on Wednesday 15 June, at 6:30 pm

Moving to Mars charts the epic journey made my two Burmese families from a vast refugee camp in the Thai/Burma border to their new homes in the UK. At times hilarious, at times emotional, their travels provide a fascinating and unique insight not only into the effects of migration, but also into one of the most important current political crises: Burma.

The film will be followed by a Q&A with:

Volker Gerdesmeier– Director of Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe

Annabelle Roig– UNHCR Senior External Relations Officer

Eleanor Dean– Production Assistant on the film, and now working for Refugee Action

with Carlos Jimenez from UNRIC as Moderator


The film is in English and Burmese with English subtitles and has a runtime of 90 min.
