About

When Ahmad's life comes under threat by the Taliban in Afghanistan, he leaves his family behind for survival, without saying goodbye, and ends up in Europe's worst Refugee Detention Camp, Moria. Through the stress of leaving his family, and the anxiety of not knowing how many years it will take, Ahmad decides to pick up a camera and document his journey and story. With no end in sight Ahmad strives to maintain his determination while making the lives of those around him better while dealing with the pain of his family may suffer at the hands of Taliban. The film is an odyssey from the eyes of Ahmad about Afghanistan's 40 year of history and pitfalls of Immigration that have lead millions homeless. – Jawad Mir This November, SolidariTee Oxford and Somerville College are collaborating to host a preview screening of “Citizen of Moria”. Gracing the event will be the film’s director, Jawad Mir. We hope that the screening will shed light on the immense challenges that continue to affect displaced individuals, and draw particular attention to the injustices that persist at Europe’s borders. The event will consist of the documentary screening, followed by a panel discussion. We look forward to seeing you there! All proceeds from tickets will go towards SolidariTee's grants, which fund NGOs working mostly in Greece to provide legal and psychological aid to displaced individuals.
