Migration in the Movies

Last week, we had our first event in our series “Migration in the Movies”. Our screening of “For a Moment, Freedom” was attended by both EMMIR students and other students and friends from Stavanger.

This week’s film will be: “Va, Vis et Deviens – Live and Become” (2005) by Radu Mihăileanu.
The film follows a Christian Ethopian boy who disguises himself as an Ethopian Jew of the Beta Israel in order to escape the famine and draught in Ethopia. It follows his life in Israel after he is airlifted to Israel as part of the Operation Moses (Mivtza Moshe) in 1984.

You can find the trailer here:
