Helm Cinema, in partnership with the Spanish Commission for Refugee Aid (CEAR), will film the documentary “Welcome to Spain” in its rooms in order to generate donations for the association’s campaign, which is aimed to meet the immediate needs of Ukrainian refugees. The special pass will be available on March 24.
The film will be screened at the Yelmo Puerta de Alicante Cinema (Alicante), Yelmo Las Arenas Cinema (Las Palmas), Yelmo Ideal Cinema (Madrid), Yelmo Vialia Málaga Cinema (Málaga), Yelmo Premium Lagoh Cinema (Seville), and Yelmo Campanar Cinema (Valencia) on Thursday, March 24 at 8:00 p.m.
Until capacity is met, tickets will cost 10 euros and will be available on the Cine Yelmo website (https://yelmocines.es/sinopsis/bienvenidos-a-espana). By giving up rooms in six Spanish towns, the exhibitor demonstrates her social commitment.
Welcome to Spain was screened as part of the official selection at Hot Docs, a Canadian international documentary festival. The film, directed by Juan Antonio Amador and produced by Making Doc, depicts the daily lives of refugees who are accepted at the CEAR reception facility in Torreblanca, Seville, via the eyes of numerous protagonists from Yemen, Venezuela, and Morocco.
FUNDS TO HELP UKRAINIAN REFUGEES WITH BASIC NEEDS
The monies obtained from this unique screening will be used to meet the most basic requirements of the refugees arriving in Spain from Ukraine, such as special health treatments, resources for mothers and children, basic necessities, pharmaceuticals, hygiene items, and home equipment. In addition, CEAR has set up a crowdfunding page for anyone who wishes to help, where donations can be made for the same emergency.
Following the screening of the film, the public will be able to engage in a discussion with a CEAR representative to learn more about the Commission’s activities in the face of this humanitarian situation.
