Andalus and Take One Action Film Festivals are delighted to invite you to the screening: At Home in the World.

ABOUT

An intimate and poignant look at a school for refugee children in Denmark.

Shot over the course of a year in a Danish school run by the Red Cross, At Home in the World offers a moving glimpse into the lives of five children struggling to learn Danish while adjusting to life in new surroundings. As they await the outcome of their family’s asylum claims, some of the children thrive and build friendships despite their traumatic pasts; others have difficulty containing their fears and sense of alienation. 

With astonishing restraint, the film captures its young protagonists’ extraordinary resilience and fragility – while quietly paying tribute to their Danish teachers’ remarkable humanity.

Ali is scared by his nightmares. His classmate, Magomed, is coping quietly with the prospect of his father’s deportation. Don't miss At Home in the World, a film about ordinary children facing extraordinary circumstances at a school for refugees. 

As always, we welcome you stay with us after the film for inspiring conversations and opportunities for effective personal action.
