Join us in Brussels for the Premiere of the documentary "This is my home now" by Saddie Choua produced by EWL and the European Network of Migrant Women !

[Brussels, 7 September 2012] The European Women’s Lobby, the European Network of Migrant Women, the Conseil des Femmes Francophones de Belgique and the Nederlandstalige Vrouwenraad are pleased to invite you to the European Premiere of the documentary film This is My Home Now by Saddie Choua on Thursday 13 September at 19.30 at the Galeries Cinema, Brussels.

Saddie Choua’s latest film follows the stories of three women of migrant background living in the Europe. While struggling for their equal rights, these women, like so many others, enrich their host communities in myriad ways. Anna is a gender researcher and poet of Russian background who owns a hotel in Lefkara, Cyprus. Dil from Sri Lanka is a successful stand-up comedian, journalist and radio host as well as an active voice for equality and the rights of migrants and queers in Ireland. Sophie from Tunisia runs a beauty salon and social institute in Marseille, France, an empowering meeting place for women from different backgrounds. The stories of Anna, Dil and Sophie break from stereotypes of migrant women and give a face and a voice to the increasing number of women of migrant background in Europe, rarely seen or heard.

The screening of the European Premiere of "This is My Home Now" will be followed by a Q&A session with director Saddie Choua and a performance of the soundtrack band Shakara United.

Free entrance, to secure a place, register by sending an e-mail by 12 September 2012 to Jessica Machacova (European Women’s Lobby): machacova@womenlobby.org
