The Human Rights Watch Film Festival is streaming across the UK and Ireland from March 17-25, and Golden Thread Gallery is delighted to be a presenting partner of the Opening Night Film SilenceHeardLoud. Directed by artist and filmmaker Anna Konik, this powerful film is a reminder of the struggles facing members of the UK refugee community as they rebuild their lives and navigate the British #asylum system.
In ‘Silence Heard Loud’ we meet seven individuals from six countries who journeyed to the UK in search of safety—fleeing from war, terrorism, ethnic hatred, persecution, and domestic violence.
