“Suspended Lives” is a documentary which was filmed in Malta during 2009 and 2010. It tells the story of seven migrants who sought asylum in Malta during this time: stories of ordinary people trying to survive in extraordinary circumstances.
“Suspended Lives” was launched on the 17 December 2010, in an activity marking International Migrants Day (18 December). From January until June 2011 the Jesuit Refugee Service Malta will be holding a number of free public screenings. The documentary will be the focus of an awareness-raising campaign, highlighting the hardships faced by asylum seekers and forced migrants in Malta.
