The first feature from Manchester-based director Jason Wingard, In Another Life is a bold mix of documentary and fictional drama, shot over a year in the Calais Jungle. Adnan (Elie Haddad) and Bana (Toya Frantzen) have left war-torn Syria in order to reach the UK. Travelling through Europe with money running low, they are forced into the notorious Calais Jungle.
Faced with the prospect of a risky illegal entry to the UK or the squalor of the camp, they decide to take their chances on the trucks and ferry in a desperate bid to make it to the UK.
This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Jason Wingard, Producer Hannah Stevenson and Cast Member Yousef Jubeh, Biniyam Biruk Theshome and Mudar Abbara.
