A meditative documentary about a holding center for asylum seekers from all corners of the globe, who are stranded indefinitely in a summer camp in Ireland. Intensely close conversations with immigrants from Congo, Kurdistan, Nigeria, Somalia, and Sri Lanka reveal their individual stories, from the epic to the everyday, and the trauma of waiting endlessly in this bizarre no-mans-land. (2008, 82 min. Dirs. Nicky Gogan and Paul Rowley)

 

Public programs are made possible, in part, by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss. 

Additional support is provided by Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, and the Hammer Programs Committee.
