Unsettled: Seeking Refuge in America is a feature-length documentary revealing the untold stories of LGBT refugees and asylum seekers who have fled intense persecution from their home countries and who are resettling in the United States. As leadership in America continues to demonize immigrants and drastically restrict the flow of refugees and asylum seekers into the U.S., Unsettled follows Subhi, a gay Syrian refugee, Cheyenne and Mari, a lesbian couple from Angola, and Junior, a gender non-conforming gay man from the Congo, struggling to create new lives for themselves.
Unsettled will be available to rent within the UK on SQIFF's Vimeo on Demand channel between 3 and 17 February for LGBT History Month.
This event features a discussion responding to the film with Solomon Adebayo and Zainab Arowoshere from LGBT Unity Scotland, a community-led group providing essential support to LGBTQIA+ refugees, asylum seekers, and other migrants.
