AGENDA
Reception
Introduction by the Filmmaker Julia Meltzer

Film Screening
Discussion of the Issues Raised by the Film

This film is available on PBS and includes a lesson plan and discussion guide.

The film tells the nuanced story of members of a family displaced by the Syrian conflict who are remaking their lives in America as refugees. Members of the family struggle to walk the line between their Muslim values and those of the new world in which they find themselves.

As we watch this hour-fifteen minute film about one teenage Syrian refugee girl and her family filmed during the recent presidential campaign, we will be thinking about the elements of this refugee experience.  Though many have experienced this complex life passage, we will focus on and discuss the unique issues experienced by Muslim Syrians fleeing a devastating and protracted war during a presidential campaign that featured a goal to end migration from the entire region. Meet the filmmaker and other members of the production.
