Howling Eagle is an independent film and activism project created by artist Angus McDonald presenting films and stories about the world’s migrant & refugee crisis.
“I want to make beautiful poignant films that put a human face on this issue, to demystify the myths and fearful rhetoric that often surround notions of refugees. Individuals and families fleeing persecution and conflict are people exactly like us that seek the same things we do but are in impossible situations that have forced them to leave. The choice made by societies on how to approach this issue is crucially important. If we allow politicians to succeed in making us fearful and allowing cruel and inhumane policies to be justified, it doesn’t protect us, it only makes us weaker. Adopting compassionate positive approaches that respect and empower vulnerable people and acknowledge their humanity is deeply beneficial for us too.“
