Documentary: Migrant Lives Matter – ‘Nine Shots’

October 30, 2020 - 13:00-14:30

Nine Shots’ is a pilot documentary made by Tsai Tsung-lung, a renowned documentary maker, who explores the death of a Vietnamese migrant worker that reminds us of the death of George Floyd and the injury of Jacob Blake. What motivated men and women in the Global South to seek employment in the Global North? How are guest workers portrayed by the media, particularly those who are on the run? What kind of recruitment, employment and migration regimes should be put in place between the sending and receiving states? Who, or what, is responsible for their loss of lives or their suffering of injuries at work or as a result of the use of state force? Does the use of force indicate institutional and societal discrimination?

Kindly be aware about any time difference – the event will be held 13-14:30 (UK time).
