Film 50:50 presents Calais Children: A Case to Ans

Film 50:50 presents Calais Children: A Case to Ans


Continuing our season of films promoting women film makers - this is the fifth in the series of Film 50:50. We’ll be screening ‘CALAIS CHILDREN: A CASE TO ANSWER’ (2018). DIRECTOR SUE CLAYTON. 

The film explores the story of the 2,000 children left when the Calais Jungle was closed down, with many of them having a right to be in Great Britain. In the middle of all the chaos, Sue Clayton crowdfunded through the night so she could follow up on what happened to some of the hundreds of abandoned children and young people over the following year.

Really pleased to welcome Sue Clayton [] the award winning filmmaker who shares her experience of challenging the UK Government on it’s human rights record. A powerful example of film making for political and legal change. Director Sue Clayton will hold a question-and-answer session after the screening of her award-winning film on the children of the Calais Jungle. We look forward to hearing how the film was made and the stories of the children she met as well as the subsequent court hearing.

Film 50:50 is endorsed by a growing number of partners, including Leeds City Council, Women’s Lives Leeds, Leeds University and A Listening Space.

The idea to show films by women writers/directors is rooted in four simple principles:

* To show films made and/or directed by women.
* To show films on every genre -not just films about women or aimed at women
* To show films by women from all over the world
* To show films that attract a diverse audience
