Two new short films highlight the cruelty and violence of the hostile environment.

We made one of them (with Whalebone Films). We’re featured in the other (made by the Guardian)

The first film is about a Romanian couple who were detained in Yarl’s Wood for sleeping rough and the effect the experience has had on their lives and their faith in the society in which they live.

 

The subject of the second film is ‘Britain’s homeless children’—forced to sleep on buses or other public places because their parents have no recourse to public funds.

 

There are still too few first-person stories out there about the human cost of the UK government’s current border policies. Those of us who know what goes on need to be better at making sure they are told.
