About
Many people fleeing conflicts hope that refugee camps would be a temporary home while they await peace and stability to return to their home countries. Unfortunately, many have ended up staying in the camps for decades.
On Thursday 1 December 2016, the Rift Valley Forum and the Church of Sweden will screen the documentary, If we ever get out of here, by Marika Grieshel and Lollo Jarnebrink, followed by a discussion.

If we ever get out of here documents the lives of ordinary people who have become long-term refugees, stuck in the Kakuma camp, suspended from opportunity and isolated from all that is familiar.

The story of the daily struggles of Klementine, Deeqa and Jackson aims to give a greater understanding of the importance of psychosocial support for refugees.

The Kakuma refugee camp was founded in Kenya in 1991 and was originally planned as a temporary solution for young boys fleeing the civil wars in Sudan. It is now home to about 200, 000 people forced to flee conflict in the neighbouring countries.

Discussants
Marika Griehsel, Film Director

Else Berglund, Church of Sweden

Collins Onyango, Lutheran World Federation (LWF)

Jackson Mumbere, Kakuma Refugee Camp Resident

Synopsis
Confronted by the skeletons in her closet, Elida Wema finds herself haunted by secrets from her past; secrets she thought so well hidden. A battle that puts the ideals of love, betrayal, temptation and marriage to the test ensues. With it, a tough decision has to be made: whether to stay with her old husband who loves her so much but with whom she feels like a prisoner or to follow a stranger whom she barely knows but promises her freedom, freedom that comes at a great cost.
