1962

Like many asylum seekers, Gulwali Passarlay and Majid Adin arrived in Britain in the backs of refrigerated trucks.  A gifted artist, Adin went on to win a competition to animate Elton John’s Rocket Man and produce a graphic novel, Hamid & Shakespeare, weaving stories of his journey from Iran to the Calais refugee camp – the “Jungle” – through elements of Shakespeare’s plays.
