Daniel Trilling: Lights In The Distance - Exile and Refuge at the Borders of Europe

Thur 10 Oct
19:00 - 20:00
St Nicolas’ Community Centre


Acclaimed journalist Daniel Trilling presents a powerful and illuminating portrait of the refugee crisis, seen through the eyes of people who have experienced it first-hand.

Visiting camps, hostels, and detention centres, and delving into his own family’s history of displacement, Trilling weaves together the stories of people he has met showing that the terms commonly used to define them – refugee or economic migrant, legal or illegal, deserving or undeserving – fall woefully short of capturing the complex realities.
