Aga is the story of an elderly couple living in the Russian tundra. Their daughter has left their yurt to go and work in a mine, and melting ice is threatening their survival. 

Join us for the Opening Gala of London Migration Film Festival 2019, and explore the impact that climate emergency and urbanisation have on traditional livelihoods in the Global South.

The film will be followed by a Q&A with academics and activists, including Bhavna Dave from SOAS Politics Department. https://www.facebook.com/events/260657678214332/
