Bertha Dochouse launches a short docs night this month, amidst a strong and varied programme of documentaries every Thursday evening at the Curzon Bloomsbury. The Broken Borders shorts take a deeper look at global diaspora and migration to Europe, with The Land Between Us collating a series of films examining the near billion displaced peoples searching for something better.
