My (Refugee) Life

‘My (Refugee) Life’ looks beyond the numbers and behind closed doors to follow five refugees as they navigate temporary accommodation, employment, love, family and education in the UK. We put together a trainee crew of refugees and worked with award-winning production company, Postcard Productions, to tell the stories of Bahaa, Bahadury, Gulsom, Joel and Zarith.
