Nominate Your Favorite Films

On this blog, I intermittently highlight videos and short documentary films that focus on refugees and other forced migrants. However, I haven't reported much on feature-length movies. These too can be useful resources, particularly for advocacy groups aiming to raise awareness of displacement issues and for lecturers wishing to add variety to their reading lists.

I would like to invite readers to help me compile a list of remarkable films that share useful insights into refugee, asylum and forced migration issues. Please provide your nominations by leaving a comment to this post with all the relevant details, including what you liked about the film(s). I'll circulate a consolidated list at a future point in time.

Thanks for your suggestions!

while popular films really got the essence of what I see in Africa as an Aid worker.
