Host of stars urge UK Government to protect refugees in powerful film

Dame Emma Thompson, Meryl Streep and Sylvester Stallone are the among stars who have called on the UK Government to reverse a “cruel Bill” which will criminalise refugees amid the Ukrainian conflict. The film, scripted by actor and comedian David Schneider, puts the viewer in the position of a refugee who has been forced from their home because of war destroying their country. It illustrates how refugees could be deemed criminals under the new Nationality and Borders Bill if they made their own way to the UK seeking safety. Actors Daniel Radcliffe, David Morrissey and David Harewood join Sanjeev Bhaskar, Luke Evans and writer Benjamin Zephaniah in the film.
