Sunday Screening – Moving to Mars

Screening Sunday 28th February, 2010

Moving to Mars follows two refugee families from Burma over the course of a year that will change their lives completely.  Forced from their homeland by the repressive military junta, they lived in a Thai refugee camp for nearly twenty years. A resettlement scheme offers them the chance of a new life; but their new home, in the British city of Sheffield, will be different to everything they’ve ever known.
