SYNOPSIS

Shattering Refuge takes an unflinching look at the role of the media in reframing the act of seeking refuge from a basic human right to a criminalized activity. By deftly weaving the unscripted voices of displaced people, journalists, politicians and NGO workers into one cohesive narrative, Shattering Refuge explores whether the media is an instigator, observer, or accomplice. Shot on three continents, with ungarnished commentary from all sides of the issue, Shattering Refuge powerfully compels audiences to consider the boundaries imposed upon their own perspectives, by this coverage. Without pandering or being patronizing, Shattering Refuge boldly imagines the way forward, in a world where the very idea of refuge has been shattered and complacency is no longer an option!
