The documentary ‘Mama’ portrays the stories of Afghan asylum seekers across Europe and their families in Afghanistan through the eyes of a Norwegian retired teacher, who has taken in 60 such boys, becoming their “mama.”

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion between the film-maker, Preethi Nallu, and Afghan/Norwegian experts on the current situation in Afghanistan. They will discuss the need for expanded quotas for asylum seekers and support for new arrivals to Norway. The narrator of the film, Gro Dregelid, will provide her views on community level integration.
