Reckoning is a multimedia short film and performance piece created by a collaboration of Liberty EU Portfolio artists - Choreographer and Storyteller Akeim Toussaint Buck, Filmmaker Ashley Karrell, Animator Benedetta Fasson and Writer mandla rae. Weaving together contemporary lyrical dance, archive, animation and storytelling, Reckoning has been created from the Reckoning with Refugeedom archives which tell the stories of generations of displaced people in their own words.

To celebrate this year's Refugee Week, we have already been giving you a sneak peek on the project, which is now further developed into a live show for Journeys Festival International (15 - 24 October). But until then, enjoy the trailer for Reckoning below!

To find out more about the wider Reckoning with Refugeedom research project, please have a look at this blog.

Reckoning was delivered in partnership with the University of Manchester and funded by Arts and Humanities Research Council and co-funded by Creative Europe as part of Liberty EU.
