To commemorate World Refugee Day The United Nations in partnership with Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe invites you to the screening of

"MOVING TO MARS" on Wednesday 15 June, at 6:30 pm Moving to Mars charts the epic journey made my two Burmese families from a vast refugee camp in the Thai/Burma border to their new homes in the UK. At times hilarious, at times emotional, their travels provide a fascinating and unique insight not only into the effects of migration, but also into one of the most important current political crises: Burma.

The film will be followed by a Q&A with: Volker Gerdesmeier- Director of Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe Annabelle Roig- UNHCR Senior External Relations Officer Eleanor Dean- Production Assistant on the film, and now working for Refugee Action with Carlos Jimenez from UNRIC as Moderator
