Refugee Legal Support (RLS-Athens), in cooperation with King’s Legal Clinic, will be hosting the screening of the documentary ‘The Longest Run’ directed by Marianna Economou.

8 Nov 2018

Date: Thursday 22 November 2018

Time: 18:30 pm to 21:30 pm

Location: Room S-1.04, Strand Building, King's College London, WC2R 2LS

 

Jasim and Alsaleh are underage refugees in a Greek prison. Coming from Syria and Iraq, they were arrested and accused of smuggling illegal immigrants. With unique access in the juvenile prison and court room, the film follows the two friends closely while in custody, during the trial and after the verdict, through a narrative of suspense which reveals how youngsters are forced to transport migrants cross the border to Greece while the smugglers stay behind and continue their job uninterrupted.

 

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion chaired by Dr Leonie Ansems de Vries, Lecturer in International Relations in the War Studies Department, with speakers from RLS-Athens who have been providing free legal support to refugees and unaccompanied minors in Athens since April 2017.
