Soul Seekers by Mokhallad Rasem (Iraq/Belgium) – 40 mins

Soul Seekers is a performance documentary by Mokhallad Rasem devised as part of the Beyond Borders project on the subject of migration. The piece was created after a six-week stay at an asylum centre in Menen, Belgium (where he was previously a resident) and subsequently at asylum centres in Paris and Valenciennes. Mokhallad worked with fellow refugees to make a performance and film documenting the fluctuating feelings of limbo and hope in difficult times.

Programmed in association with Amal (a Saïd Foundation programme) and SHIFT KEY.
