Urban Migration Film Festival 15. Feb. 2012, UCL

Urban Migration Film Festival February 15th 09:30-17:00
Readers of this list may wish to sign up for the free UCL Urban Migration Film Festival, which will take place on Wednesday 15th February 09:30-17:00. We will explore questions regarding urban migration today through the prism of clips from seminal films of the past century. You are invited to come for the day, bring a packed lunch and see the two films screened over lunchtime, or drop in to the morning or afternoon sessions. Whichever you choose, you are guaranteed a fascinating discussion with a panel of experts from architecture, anthropology, film studies, planning, psychiatry and art who will be joined by several of the film-makers.
The panels will consider Journeys – how do migrants negotiate their environment whilst on the move? Transition – how do migrants adapt to new systems, shape their communities and create temporary environments? The festival will end with a session on Negotiation and Accommodation: with films on establishing roots, acculturation and myths of return.
