GRAMNet Film Series: Through Our Eyes

Tuesday 20th June 2023 @ 5:00 pm 8:00 pm

For Refugee Week 2023, in partnership with GRAMNet and BEMIS are delighted to present an IN PERSON screening of Bafta nominated director Samir Mehanovic’s  THROUGH OUR EYES (2018).

Filmed over three years, Samir Mehanovic’s emotive documentary gives a fresh and personal insight into the human catastrophe of the Syrian conflict. A Muslim refugee himself, Mehanovic fled Bosnia in the 1990s and settled in the UK. Drawing on his own experience of claiming asylum, he travels to meet Syrian refugees in their new countries of exile, to further understand the struggles of families fleeing their homes. Featuring music written and performed by refugees, Through Our Eyes is a vivid examination of the consequences of war and displacement.

Screening followed by Q&A with director Samir Mehanovic.

Join us on the 20th of June at 5PM BST at the Andrew Stewart Cinema (inside Gilmorehill Centre, 9 University Avenue, Glasgow) for a FREE in person screening of this stunning documentary, followed by a Q&A with the brilliant director Samir Mehanovic, moderated by artist and humanitarian Robert McNeil.
