To the Four Winds - Monday 28th October 5pm to 7pm at Exeter Phoenix, EX4 3LS

Farmer Cédric Herrou has welcomed migrants to his home since the beginning of the crisis, turning his backyard into a much-needed shelter. With the help of friends and volunteers, he challenges French immigration policies which make it impossible for families to set foot in France and seek asylum. Filmed during 3 years by documentary maker Michel Toesca, this everyday hero will do anything to help them, even risking his own freedom

We will discuss Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah

A collection of eighteen personal stories, Born a Crime tells the story of a mischievous young boy growing into a restless young man as he struggles to find his place in a world where he was never supposed to exist. Born a Crime is equally the story of that young man's fearless, rebellious and fervently religious mother - a woman determined to save her son from the cycle of poverty, violence and abuse that ultimately threatens her own life.
