Donate to UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency
Many women nowadays are able to have different roles. While they are taking up full-time jobs, they are taking care of their family in the meantime. However, not every woman is free to choose her own life and to live happily. To commemorate the power of inclusion for the World Refugee Day on 20 June, the 14th Charity Refugee Film Festival is going to be held between 07 June and 06 July 2021.
The goal of this year's Refugee Film Festival is to raise HK$200,000, which is enough for providing primary healthcare services to 2,000 refugees in low-resource setting six days per week, supporting 24/7 emergency services in camps through nurses and ambulances to ensure referral of urgent cases especially under the pandemic.
Film: We Are Not Princesses
Length: 75 minutes
Language: Arabic (with Traditional Chinese and English subtitles)
Online Screening: 06 June - 07 July 2021
“We Are Not Princesses” received the 38th International Festival of Films on Art (FIFA) Grand Prize. It is a documentary film about the incredible strength and spirit of four Syrian women living as refugees in Beirut, Lebanon as they come together to tell their stories of love, loss, pain and hope through the ancient Greek play, Antigone.
In the theatre, these Syrian women refugees find community and way to process their trauma as a result of the ongoing conflict in Syria. These resilient, intelligent, articulate women are picking up the pieces of their lives and moving forward together. This film uses intimate footage and animation to follow how this group of women find laughter and purpose as they come together to perform the play.
