The Flood + Recorded Q&A (15)

British drama about the challenges for a hardened immigration officer.
Featuring a recorded Q&A with star Lena Headey and the film-makers.
Wendy, a hardened immigration officer is offered a high-profile asylum case, judged on her ability to quickly and clinically reject applicants. Through her interrogation, she must uncover whether Haile is lying and has a more sinister reason for seeking asylum.

We follow Haile on his perilous 5000 kilometre journey – over oceans, across borders, and amidst the flurry of the Calais Jungle – to find solace and safety in the UK. But now he must cross the final hurdle. Based on multiple true stories, THE FLOOD is a thoughtful and timely reflection on the humanity within the refugee crisis.

Director Anthony Woodley, writer Helen Kingston, and producer Luke Healy all spent time volunteering in the Calais Jungle and felt compelled to make a film that was truthful to the refugee experience. The result is a poignant, measured piece of filmmaking, setting itself apart as one of the few feature narrative films that explores what’s happening every day at our borders.
