UK Premiere

Memory Is Our Homeland is a documentary film charting the lost story of Polish refugees in Africa from 1942 to 1952 - a journey that brought a group of children through Siberia, Iran, India, and East Africa, to new lives in Montreal, Sheffield, and across the global Polish diaspora.

A necessary film for our times with a perspective over North and South that challenges mainstream narratives and images about diaspora and hospitality.
