2nd Film Screening on ‘LIFEBOAT’
  • 25/06/21

How can a global citizen intervene in the refugee crisis?

APCEIU holds series of Virtual Film Screening Event in collaboration with SIMA Studios in 2021. The 1st Virtual Film Screening Event where the film ‘(UN)Divided’ was screened, which was held on 31 May – 1 June 2021, has invited over 800 educators around the world, providing a venue to reflect on and discover the power of dialogue for mutual understanding that overcomes differences and hatred. Together with the film, a lesson plan on the film as well as commentary videos on the lesson plan by Ms. Jennifer Geist was offered to help the participating educators bringing the film into their teaching practices.

 On the 25th and 26th June 2021, the second event is to be held to commemorate World Refugee Day (20th June). In the event, the Oscar-nominated documentary film ‘LIFEBOAT’ will be screened along with the interview with the film director, Mr. Skye Fitzgerald.


‘LIFEBOAT’ illustrates the reality of asylum seekers who are risking their lives to seek new lands of life and introduces the courageous global citizens who fight for the lives of others (asylum seekers) on the ocean. The film not only allows us to learn about the dire situation of the numerous asylum seekers but also gives a spark of hope surrounding how civil society can intervene in the refugee crisis in a meaningful way. This is highlighted in the interview clip with the film director as well. He emphasizes that we, global citizens, can and should intervene, take actions, and be engaged with the issues we face as a global community.   


The event is open to everyone for free for two days (25-26 June 2021), which will let audiences open their eyes to the refugee crisis and reflect on their roles and responsibilities as global citizens.

To join the event, please follow the instruction below.
