Frontline Doctors: Winter Migrant Crisis
Join Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in Philadelphia for a screening of the BBC One documentary Frontline Doctors: Winter Migrant Crisis, followed by a Q&A with Doctors Without Borders aid workers experienced in the European refugee crisis.
About the film:
In this BBC One documentary, Chris and Xand van Tulleken—doctors, British television presenters, part-time aid workers, and twin brothers—see for themselves what conditions are like for migrants fleeing through Europe at the height of winter. They travel to Lesbos in Greece, through the Balkans, and on to Berlin and Calais, France, to understand what’s being done on a medical and humanitarian level in response to the refugee crisis. Spending time with medics, volunteers, and refugees themselves in camps and clinics and along the route, they gain invaluable firsthand insight into the lives of people who have been through no fault of their own, forced from home.
The screening will be followed by a moderated discussion and Q&A with Doctors Without Borders staff who have recently worked in the region.
NOTE: Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please arrive early. If you have not checked-in prior to five minutes before the start of the panel, your reservation is no longer guaranteed.
This event is part of the Forced From Home exhibition in Philadelphia, PA
