The theatre play is based on the book “War, what if it were here?”, by Danish novelist, Janne Teller. The book was published in Denmark (2001), and since then re-adapted to more than 16 country-specific versions. 

“Imagine what if you lose the roof over your head, your mum, your friends. Where would you go? As a 12-year old you and your family flee your country to a peaceful place. Nowhere and nevermore you will feel at home. Always and everywhere you will be only a foreigner. Someone took away your life and totally turned it upside down. Will you learn to live a new life?” 

20.15 / Discussion with Janne Teller, best-selling Danish novelist and author of the book “War, what if it were here?” and former conflict advisor to the EU and UN, and Lenka Šafránková Pavlíčková, Czech sociologist who was leading projects aimed at integration of foreigners at Brno Municipality. Moderated by Valon Halimi, Chief of International Organization for Migration (IOM) Slovakia.

The discussion will be in English and interpreted to Slovak language.

Free public event.

THE OLD OAK

EMN Film Screening 

18 June 2024 at 19.00, Kino Film Europe, Štefánikova 25, Bratislava

Screening of the film The Old Oak (2023, 113 min, English with Czech subtitles, trailer: here) directed by Ken Loach, written by Paul Laverty.

The Old Oak is the story of a village in the Northeast of England. Many have left what was once a thriving, proud community which now struggles to keep old values alive. There is growing anger, resentment and a lack of hope, but houses are cheap and available. This makes it an ideal location for Syrian refugees. How will they be received? And what does the future hold for the last remaining pub in the village, The Old Oak?

Free public event.

For the seminar participants, tickets will be available at the seminar venue. Tickets for the public can be reserved online at the cinema website and picked on the day of the screening till 18.45 CEST.
