Presented in collaboration with Meeting Point Leeds, Hyde Park Picture House and Leeds Industrial Museum this series of screenings explores the image of journeying and the journeying of the image in the 21st century, at a moment of heightened public attention to the migrant image. Inspired by notions of ‘emergency cinema‘ the series aims to confront the place of culture in a state of emergency. The screenings are programmed in collaboration with Amy Charlesworth (Open University)
