“From the Same Soil”

Film Poster“From the Same Soil” is a recently released documentary film produced by the Scalabrini Centre and Amnesty International. It portrays the lives of three LGBT-individuals who have left their home countries because of discrimination and persecution to apply for refugee status in South Africa on the base of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity.

Despite the fact South African laws protect LGBT-individuals; the individuals portrayed encounter several challenges in their new communities.
