Hamedullah: The Road Home, 23 min
Filmmaker Sue Clayton refers to them as ‘secret children’ – the hundreds of child refugees who have arrived on their own in the UK yet face an uncertain future once they reach 18. Protected by laws governing minors they settle into life in Britain, yet once they officially become adults many are deported back to the countries they have fled from. Clayton captures this reality for one young man, Hamedullah Hassany, who finds himself transported from his life in the UK back to Afghanistan where he has little choice but to live on the streets. Having given Hamedullah a camera he documents the struggle of living in a country where he has no family, few friends and no support system.
