On the eve of World Refugee Day and a few days before the Pride March, the Canadian Cultural Center invites you to a screening of the film Last Chance.
In this heartbreaking documentary, Nova Scotia filmmaker Paul-Émile d’Entremont follows five refugee claimants in Canada who fled their home country to escape homophobic violence.
Facing the difficulties of integration and fearing deportation, they anxiously await the decision that will change their lives. But all want to believe in the generosity of their safe haven.
The presentation will be followed by a conversation between the director and the president of the l’Association pour la Reconnaissance des Droits des personnes Homosexuelles et transsexuelles à l’Immigration et au Séjour (ARDHIS), Mrs. Aude Le Moullec-Rieu.
These life stories and the discussion afterward will help us to better understand the realities of LGBT asylum seekers.
