Komola's Story | Nowhere to Call Home

Video by the Environmental Justice Foundation

'In the flood, 80 or 90 families that I know lost their homes. They were attached to one another in a row, some of them were my husband’s uncles and aunts, all were lost. Maybe 250 people were made homeless in minutes. The people who could afford to move then went to other places where they could find a living.'

Nowhere to Call Home: Climate Change and Forced Migration

Nowhere to Call Home explores the human issues around climate change and forced migration. Photographic and filmed portraits of climate refugees from Bangladesh and Sami people from the Arctic, whose way of life is threatened by climate change, have been captured by the Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF), with their stories told as audio dramatisations by playwright Ursula Rani Sarma.

The live experience was projected onto the National Theatre’s flytower, 6pm-11pm between 26 October – 2 November.
