February 24, 2022

The 21st of February is World Social Justice Day. The Delegation for Diversity and Inclusion of the Complutense University of Madrid, in tribute to this day, invites you to an event to be held on 28 February at 16:00 in the Faculty of Information Sciences of the Complutense University. At this event, a short documentary film entitled “Moha y Pilar” will be screened, followed by a round table discussion in which the protagonist and director of the film will be present, as well as representatives of major organisations and media active in working with the unaccompanied foreign minors community.

The protagonist of the film, Moha, a 15 year old from Guinea-Conakry, risked his life, like thousands of others, to cross the Strait of Gibraltar with Pilar, his teacher during his first years in Spain, who decided to take him into her home when he became an adult.

This short film aims to make visible and reflect on the helpless situation in which young people, who remain under guardianship from the age of 18 until they are fully integrated into society, find themselves, and the difficulties and constant bureaucratic obstacles they have to face. The various difficulties make their access to social benefits and equal opportunities very slim.

Admission is free until the auditorium reaches full capacity. Both the university community and the general public at Complutense University can attend.
