Exodus: A Special Screening Event with Doctors Without Borders

6:00 PM PT

The Clay Theatre
2261 Fillmore Street
San Francisco, CA 94115

Doctors Without Borders presents a special screening of the award-winning Frontline documentary "Exodus" (KEO Films - 2016). This ground-breaking film features footage shot by refugees using smartphones to document their harrowing journey fleeing war and persecution to seek safety in Europe.

This event is part of our traveling exhibition about the global refugee crisis: Forced From Home.

The screening will be followed by a brief Q&A with MSF field workers and staff.
