Now he is just another refugee...

Migrants are not so different from ourselves
0'42" 24 April 2017 Universidade Lusófona Lisbon

This video was made by film students at the the Universidade Lusófona in Lisbon, Portugal. It questions our perceptions of migrants and refugees, and shows that many of them have a lot to offer their newly-adopted countries. Many are highly educated and have valuable skills, in contrast with stereotypes which frequently cloud our judgement concerning migrants. The video challenges us to view Dr Halil Anas as someone just like us, rather than just another refugee.
