Through compelling visuals and recordings captured by filmmaker/photographer Patrick Fileti, Unseen explores the barriers refugees face, the difficulty of being torn between two cultures and their need for recognition. With the number of displaced people having reached over 65 million globally, this timely exhibit shines a light on those that need our support. Governments have a duty to help them, but with most wealthy countries still treating refugees as somebody else’s problem and hiding behind closed borders, poorer countries currently host an incredible 86% of all refugees.
Unseen challenges viewers’ perceptions by revealing the many barriers we must overcome.
