Calling Home

Jade Jackman, 2017 | BFI (United Kingdom)

In the midst of a business park in Bedfordshire, you'll find Yarl's Wood Immigration Removal Centre. Slotted in amongst the stocky offices of cement and the tall street lights that curve ominously towards the sky, you'd be forgiven for not noticing the 400 women that live between them; you weren't meant to... Through phone recordings, we document the reality of being a female asylum seeker inside Yarls Wood detention centre. With special thanks to the interviewees: Dorcas Issa, Deborah Issa & Martha
