Maids for Sale Screening

Migrant Worker Task Force in cooperation with Unesco Club AUB and Human Rights and Peace Club invites you to watch the film Maids for Sale by Lebanese film maker Dima Al-Joundi.

The film tells the story of three Sri Lankan housemaids, Sahika, Anne-Ritta and Janika: the reasons for their coming, the reasons for their staying and in one case the return back home.

After the film, Dima Al-Joundi together with Roland Tawk, a lawyer, Father Salim a priest and Dipendra Uprety, the community leader of the Nepalese community in Beirut will talk to us about the issue of migrant domestic workers in Lebanon: Exploitation, Racism and Violence.

You are more than welcome to ask as many questions on the issue as possible and feel free to bring everyone you know!

Tuesday, May 3 · 7:00pm - 10:00pm

Auditorium B, West Hall, AUB
