Dir Thomas Laurance | 2023 | UK | 87 mins | 15 | English, French, Arabic, Pashto, Farsi language with English language subtitles

In the early 2010s, with NGOs being blocked by red tape and a lack of positive action by the British and French governments, an extraordinary grassroots movement sprang up to aid refugees stranded in the Calais ‘Jungle’ camp. This is a behind-the-scenes look at the community that sprang up there before the authorities demolished it, the story of ordinary people navigating the moral dilemmas and grey areas of giving aid to vulnerable people in the face of official apathy or worse. A remarkable and timely film.

A live question and answer session with special guests director Thomas Laurance and Hull Help for Refugees will follow the film.

"Thomas Laurance’s extraordinary documentary observes the cultural vibrancy and solidarity that blossomed on the muddy ground." ★★★★ Phuong Le, The Guardian

"An essential documentary, moving and compassionate. If the representation of refugees in the mainstream media were closer to this documentary, then the UK population would have a harder time ignoring the ongoing monstrous state violence against them." ★★★★★ Alasdair MacRae, UK Film Review


ON OUR DOORSTEP is rated 15 by the British Board of Film Classification. For more info (which may contain spoilers), please follow this link
