Documentary short film “University refuge” (20′)

Documentary short film directed by Pau Faus and produced by Nanouk Films, with the support of the Barcelona City Council and the collaboration of the University of Barcelona.

It collects the actions that the UB and the Barcelona City Council carry out to ease refugees’ access to higher education. Specifically, the film focuses on the experience of Shahd, a student who, after fleeing from Syria, was able to continue her vital and educational career in Barcelona thanks to the UB Support Program for refugees. While Shahd tells us about the war, how she has remade his life in Barcelona and her future, we accompany her in the preparations for the next concert of Orpheus XXI, a band launched by Jordi Savall and formed by refugee and immigrant musicians.

Subtitles are available in Catalan, Spanish or English.
