Description

Featuring a FREE screening of the documentary film, THIS IS HOME, Audience Award Winner, World Documentary, 2018 Sundance Film Festival. Screening followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Alexandra Shiva, Director/Producer, and a panel discussion with members of local agencies working on refugee resettlement.

THIS IS HOME is an intimate portrait of four Syrian refugee families arriving in Baltimore, MD, who are given eight months of resettlement assistance to become self-sufficient and "learn America". As they find the strength and resilience to adapt to challenges, including the newly imposed travel ban, they also confront the enormous cultural differences in their new home. This is a universal story, highlighted by humor and heartbreak, about what it's like to start over -- no matter the obstacles.
