As part of THE NFB IN LIBRARIES, the Medecine Hat Public Library is offering a free screening in recognition of World Refugee Day on June 20th of the following film 

From Sherbrooke to Brooks – Inside a Migration Corridor (Roger Parent | 2016 | 1 h 7)
In French with English subtitles

This documentary travels the migration corridor forged between Sherbrooke, Quebec, and the town of Brooks, Alberta, by French-speaking Africans. Most have come from the Democratic Republic of Congo, some by way of refugee camps in Uganda and Tanzania. Unable to find employment in Quebec, they travelled out West. An interweaving of personal stories and the filmmaker’s own trips back and forth through the corridor offer an honest look at how much work is yet to be done to successfully integrate these newcomers.

The library will be showing two films focusing on the refugee experience: From Sherbrooke to Brooks followed by Seeking Asylum, which follows a migrant through the flawed asylum process in the United States. Discussion will follow each film.
