The BILFF/Mostra CineTrabalho, in partnership with the Karl Polanyi Research Center for Global Social Studies, screens the films ‘District Zero’ and ‘Limpiadores’ at the Conference: ‘Contestation between forms of global justice‘. The event is organised by the Karl Polanyi Research Center for Global Social Studies in cooperation with the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation and the Institute of Political History.
The aim of the conference is to better understand the current debates around migration in Europe, but, importantly, from a global perspective. Participants will elaborate on the meaning and understandings of global justices (among others non-domination on state levels, impartiality in individual rights, cultural recognition, more equal sharing of global burdens) in the context of the current processes of migration, migration policies, nationalism afraid of external domination, and unequal relations globally and also within Europe. We would like to focus on the perspectives of subaltern, unprivileged groups, and their sharpening competition in a turbulent capitalist environment, currently going through ambiguous transformations. The key would be to see different justice perspectives and how they can be understood.

What’s hidden inside the smartphone of a refugee? It contains clues to a refugee’s memories, past, identity and some contacts from the world he had to flee from. This film narrates the daily life of a tiny mobile phone shop in one of the largest refugee camps in the world.
