I wasn’t involved in refugee employment when I saw this film but I had spent some time working with internal migrants in former-Yugoslavia. Bosnian refugees are long past our five year service window. They continue to be great ambassadors for new arrivals in the US workforce. If you can find them, they are great employer connections. Here’s how the IMDb describes this film.
“Set in London, during October 1993, England are playing the Netherlands in the World Cup qualifiers. The Bosnian War is at its height, and refugees from former Yugoslavia are arriving. Football rivals and political adversaries from the Balkans all precipitate conflict and amusing situations. Meanwhile, the lives of four English families are affected in different ways by an encounter with the refugees; one of the families improbably becomes involved with a Balkan refugee through the England vs Netherlands match.”
