Sanctuary

Sanctuary is a one-hour documentary profiling the refugee experience of three asylum seekers, at different points in the institutiona sanctuary experience. Avoiding the simplistic church-state opposition, Sanctuary tells the story from all sides of the debate where government, officials and sanctuary seekers attempt to work within and outside, the Canadian immigration and legal system.

Sanctuary will be much more than a simple interview based documentary, it will be a film that has visual impact and is as much an experience as it is the telling of a story or the presentation of an argument. Sanctuary is a documentary about people who are trying to come to terms with what they have lost and what they hope to gain, a home.
