SUMMARY

This presentation will explore how film—fiction or documentary—can enable clinicians to think through some of the ethical challenges posed by the health care needs of displaced persons, migrants, or refugees. I will draw from several recent films, about people attempting to migrate from Africa to Europe by sea, in order to consider questions of trauma, justice, responsibility, and the imagination. I end by considering the state of migration to the United States by sea, and how the stories of shipwreck, drowning, and survival in these films provide powerful metaphors for thinking about how to seek liveable answers to sometimes impossible questions.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
1. After attending this lecture, participants will be able to describe some of the ethical challenges posed by the health care needs of displaced persons, refugees, and migrants.
2. After attending this lecture, participants will be able to identify some film resources whose representations offer ways to think about those ethical challenges.
3. After attending this lecture, participants will be able to describe how film representation, whether fiction or non-fiction, provides figurative as well as literal frameworks for approaching social or global challenges to health and those who care for the suffering.
