Name Me Lawand
BFI Doc Society Fund
Name Me Lawand is an immersive cinematic experience told from within the eyes and ears of a young deaf boy from Iraq. Void of any language, communication or true sense of self, Lawand struggles to piece together his surroundings in his new home in Yorkshire, England after a traumatic and turbulent year of seeking asylum through Europe. Paralleling the heartbreaking story of the heroic people who never gave up on him, is Lawands own emotional journey as he fights to learn where he is, where he came from and ultimately who he is to become.
