The event is a screening of the documentary "Twice A Stranger": a cross media project about the greatest forced migrations of the 20th century, when millions of people were uprooted and moved to new homelands. Based on oral video testimonies, rare film archives and photos this project brings visitors face-to-face with the survivors of these traumatic events. From the Greek-Turkish exchange in 1922-24, "Twice A Stranger" travels to the German-Polish forced migration at the end of the Second World War, to the partition of India, and the Cyprus crisis in 1960s and 1970s. The documentary was screened at the Benaki Museum in Athens about a year ago and since then it has been shown to many different parts of the globe. You are all welcome!
Free pizzas and beverages will be served.
Thursday May 8th 2014, 6-8pm in Lucy Ellis Lounge at the Foreign Languages Building (FLB), 707 S. Matthews Avenue, Urbana, IL 61801
