Jack O’Connell and Holliday Grainger star in a powerful new short-film about the refugee crisis, called Home.

A new trailer has just been released for the film, which was shot in three countries. The film is supported by UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, and will screen in selected cinemas nationwide from Monday 20th June.

As thousands of men, women and children attempt to get into Europe, Home follows a comfortable English family who experience a life-changing journey of their own.

The ambition of the 20-minute film is to address the current refugee crisis and help drive global awareness to support UNHCR’s World Refugee Day on Monday 20th June.

Jack O’Connell and Holliday Grainger get behind the refugee crisis along with the support of artists including Coldplay, Dizzee Rascal and Wiley who all donated music for the soundtrack too.

Written and directed by BAFTA-winning director, Daniel Mulloy, Home aims to remind the viewer that refugees are just like you or I – fathers, mothers, sons and daughters – for whom the meaning of the word “home” has undergone a traumatic re-evaluation.
