DIB's new documentary, The voices of the displaced, is ready to premiere. The film follows Filipino Johary and his newfound identity as an activist. Along with 200,000 others, he is internally displaced (IDP) in his own country following an armed struggle in Marawi City between the government and fundamentalist militias. He and the other activists believe the government is not doing enough to get people rehoused and rebuilt the city. Therefore, he is now fighting for the people and the internally displaced persons to claim their rights and get the government to act.
The film will be shown for the first time on Wednesday, February 19 at 16:30 at Aarhus-kultbiografen Øst For Paradis, where DIB offers the audience bubbles and snacks. In Copenhagen, the early birds can experience the movie at the Grand Theatret on March 1 at 10:00, where DIB invites the audience to croissants, tea and coffee.
After the film, there will be presentations about the teaching project #standingupfortheworld and about DIB's work with the internally displaced people in the Philippines.
