Wee Films by Unity Sisters
Wednesday 11 August, 5:00 to 5.30pm
Online event (free)
A young woman takes us on a journey to her new home: Glasgow. Within the small and ordinary details of her new life, she finds memories from her motherland.
Sisterhood is a poetry film about loneliness which all asylum seeker women experience. In this poem, Syeda from Unity sisters talks about how she and her sisters face loneliness and longing during the asylum process and how sisterhood helps to cope with those feelings.
I Am More Than a Title
In this collaborative film, Unity Sisters talk about their lives before asylum and how people are more than the titles like “refugee” and “asylum seeker”.
Unity Sisters is a self-organised community group for women going through the asylum seeker and refugee system in Glasgow.
They support each other, empowering themselves and strengthening their resilience as they deal with the emotional and practical hardships of being in a different country, navigating language and integration barriers. The group currently has 67 participants with different backgrounds, coming from 19 different countries.
