Unsettled: Seeking Refuge in America

As part of LGBT history month, SQIFF are showing Unsettled, a documentary about queer asylum seekers in America as the Obama administration transitions to the Trump administration. A moving look at how slow, bureaucratic, poverty-stricken, invasive, and even traumatic the asylum process can be. However, the film is ultimately uplifting, as each person seeks to make a new and better life for themselves in a place where it is possible to be out. It also shows how many people from a diverse range of backgrounds are willing to help, in the name of solidarity and friendship.
