Screening of 'Frontline: Exodus'

Center for Middle Eastern Studies
September 18, 2017

Part of the CMES Fall 2017 Film Series "Displacement: Refugee Stories."

From PBS'  "Frontline"

Since 2011, millions of people have fled their homes in Syria and other countries besieged by violence, helping to fuel Europe’s largest migration crisis since the end of World War II. This two-hour special draws on camera and smartphone footage filmed by refugees and migrants themselves – from inside a sinking dinghy on a route across the Mediterranean Sea where thousands have died, to the tents and fires inside Calais's notorious “Jungle" camp. Through its harrowing access and intimacy, "Exodus" vividly exposes a shadow-world of human traffickers exploiting the crisis for profit, how countries are handling the influx of people, and the challenges and choices these refugees and migrants face every day.
