Sanctuary/Sustenance: The Story of Many Journeys is a multimedia film and exhibition that traces the refugee journey during the catastrophic events of displacement, on a path to sanctuary, and through the long process of rebuilding life in a new community. Produced by the internationally-recognized Chicago based human rights advocacy organization ART WORKS Projects for Human Rights, it has been screened in over a dozen cities on three continents. Sanctuary/Sustenance will appear across Europe throughout 2017 thanks to the generosity of the COFRA Foundation.
With approximately 65 million forcibly displaced people around the world, Sanctuary/Sustenance encourages viewers to confront the world’s unprecedented displacement crisis and to think critically about resettlement in their area. The film aims to not only advocate for refugee communities globally but also to spark conversation about our collective responsibility to welcome refugees and asylum-seekers – and to recognize their rights as human rights.
