To mark World Refugee Day on 20 June, UNHCR Malaysia is holding a series of free events at the Annexe Gallery this week.

On 16, 17 and 21 June, there will be film screenings of various documentaries such as Moving To Mars, an award-winning film about two Burmese families who must resettle in a new land, and The Visitor, a film about the US detention system.

Pieces of Home, a photography exhibition by Ted Adnan, will be on display throughout the week, from 17 – 22 June. Adnan’s photographs capture the prized possessions that different refugees have carried on their journeys.

On 21 – 22 June, you can shop for handmade arts and crafts at a bazaar, with sale proceeds going to the refugees who made the goods.
