International Rescue Committee in San Diego says
Every year, unique perspectives from around the world come to San Diego for the IRC’s International Documentary Film Series. From the frontlines of conflict to rebuilding life in a new country, these films take an honest look at the reality of the refugee experience. Each screening is followed by a Q&A discussion with an expert on the film’s subject area.

The second film in the 2017 series is the feature-length documentary Warehoused. The film highlights the plight of long-term refugees over the course of history, culminating in today’s refugee crisis. The term ‘warehoused’ refers to asylum seekers, trapped in border camps for five years or more, without the right to work, generate income, move freely or choose their place of residence.

Warehoused sheds light on the seemingly insurmountable challenges facing refugees across the globe through an intimate glimpse into daily life at Dadaab, Kenya -- the world’s largest refugee camp. We see the camp's inner workings through the refugees’ personal stories, most notably Liban and his perseverance to provide for and reunite with his family.


Films will be shown on three consecutive Tuesdays in June at Landmark's Hillcrest Cinemas at 7pm:

Nowhere to Hide - June 13, 2017

Warehoused - June 20th, 2017 (World Refugee Day)

Refugee Kids - June 27th, 2017

Free three-hour validated parking is available in the Village Hillcrest Garage, entrances on 5th Avenue, 6th Avenue and Washington Street.

All proceeds benefit the International Rescue Committee's programs in San Diego.

We hope to see you there!
