Blue Moment

Synopsis
This film of resilience and solidarity uncovers the mystery of a young woman from Africa who has arrived in Britain after being persecuted in her own country. Alongside her story are the perspectives of the therapist who helps her overcome her torture-trauma, and a local bus driver who supports her while she is vunerable to suspicion and racist abuse as she moves through the challenging asylum process.

'Blue Moment’ was devised in collaboration with the Refugee Therapy Centre in London, and developed in consultation with refugee support groups in the north of England, including Refugee Action in York and Solace in Leeds.
