Refugee Week: Green Border (15)

Dir. Agnieszka Holland
2023 | 182 mins
Polish, Arab, English, French with English subtitles


Pawns in a hidden war, the lives of a newly minted activist who has given up her comfortable life, a young border guard, and a Syrian family, intertwine.

In the swampy forests that make up the “green border” between Belarus and Poland, refugees from the Middle East and Africa trying to reach the European Union are trapped in a geopolitical crisis cynically engineered by Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko. In an attempt to provoke Europe, refugees are lured to the border by propaganda promising easy passage to the EU.

30 years after EUROPA EUROPA, three-time Oscar Nominee Agnieszka Holland’s poignant new feature GREEN BORDER opens our eyes, speaks to the heart, and challenges us to reflect on the moral choices that fall to ordinary people every day.

There will be a pre-screening discussion in the Secret Garden hosted by Refugee Support Devon at 7.15pm 


“Agnieszka Holland’s devastating refugee epic reverberates with deep empathy and quiet fury.” ★★★★★ Time Out
