FREE Viewing March 22nd – April 1st

Register to Watch the Film for Free

Due to recent developments in Israel, Tailor Made Films is launching a 10-day campaign (March 22nd-April 1st) that will allow everyone to view the documentary, Refugee: The Eritrean Exodus for FREE online. This release aims to inform the public about the atrocities that Eritrean refugees have endured in their homeland and to explain why they have fled. We hope to get as many people to view and share the film as possible.

With an unprecedented ultimatum, Israel recently announced that African migrants have until April 1st to leave Israel or risk being imprisoned. The vast majority of these migrants are Eritrean, and have not been given adequate consideration for asylum status. Instead, the Israeli government has officially labeled these refugees “infiltrators” and “work migrants,” which, as the film illustrates, ignores what many Eritreans have actually endured.

Film Summary:

Follow Chris Cotter, an American traveler, as he follows a common migration path through Ethiopia and into Israel, tracking the plight of Eritrean refugees. Chris and his crew visit several refugee camps, including the never-before-documented Afar region. The refugees tell stories of oppression, torture, and survival. Searching for solutions, Chris speaks to various NGOs and experts, including Assistant Secretary of State, Anne Richard. The outlook is bleak, but the spirit of the Eritrean refugees is hard to ignore.
