Project Highlights

Wednesday in Camp Rohingya - Short Documentary

Thousands of Rohingyas, recognised as refugees by the UNHCR, are trapped in an existential struggle under India’s rising Hindu nationalism. They fled genocide in Myanmar, only to find themselves trapped in a different kind of suffering in India. The film centres around a day spent at a Rohingya refugee camp in Jammu, northern India. Once a symbol of hope and sanctuary, the camp has become a stark reminder of their harrowing past and uncertain future.

Letters To The Earth - COP27 Campaign

As climate breakdown intensifies, more people have no choice but to leave their homes. Extreme weather, drought, famine and conflict have forced people to leave their homeland. The number of refugees is bound to increase with the worsening climate crisis. We went to Calais to speak to people currently on the migration frontlines. Their message to the world leaders: Leave no one behind.

Letter to Shaheen Bagh - Short Documentary

The film explores the Shaheen Bagh movement, a women’s-led protest in India against the new citizenship laws, and how it has forged solidarities across the globe. The movement evokes hope in dark fascist times and gave impetus to many similar protests across India, mostly led by Muslim women.
