Seeking Refuge


Filmed over a 5 month period, Seeking Refuge is the journey of five applicants seeking asylum in Canada as they enter the arduous maze of government bureaucracy, to obtain refugee status.

This moving chronicle of the fate of people who have fled war, persecution and political turmoil plunges us into the heart of the experiences, hopes and struggles that they endure.

From Canadian border crossings to church basements, their personal stories allow us an intimate look at this complex system.
