Jacob Thomas Pilgaard visits from Denmark and shows his short film from 2022, which is about two young police officers who must escort a well-integrated student to the airport, where she is to be deported back to Syria. A moving and hard-hitting drama created with inspiration from a true story.

Jacob will make a small presentation before the film is then shown (23min). Afterwards, we discuss the topics that the film brings up around immigration, integration, sense of belonging, safety, and nationality at individual table discussions.

The doors open at 19.00. Drinks can be bought, and you are welcome to bring your own food or order food from outside.

The event is pay what you can, we suggest a minimum of £5.

What is collected goes towards the expenses of Pilgaard’s trip.

Wednesday Bar

The first Wednesday of every month.

Wednesday bar is an initiative aimed specifically at those who study and work and therefore cannot attend our daytime events. It is the first Wednesday of every month.

Every evening has a theme, which is always organized in such a way that our non-Danish-speaking partners also can participate. The social aspect is in focus. We have film nights, creative activities, music, and many other interesting events. Everyone is welcome.
