A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to take a mobile cinema to mainland Europe to play movies for refugee families and their children. It’s hoped that the cinema experience will provide some much-needed happiness and escapism in light of their troubled circumstances.
The Moving Picture project was created by actress Shireen Farkhoy (33) from Leeds and artist William Johnson (33) - from Huddersfield. The mobile cinema is currently in Athens for a couple of weeks before travelling to Lesvos, Chios and Samos where the refugee situation is even more severe.
The movies are screened in Arabic, Farsi, Urdu (and some without language) and include universal film favourites and classic cartoons suitable for children and adults.
