Community Conversation: New Immigrants and Refugee Visions Film and Discussion Event
- This event has passed.
Date: March 24, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Join us for two unique films made by immigrants, about immigrants in partnership with Community Supported Film.
New Immigrant and Refugee Visions is a collection of documentary films by and about new immigrants and refugees. The stories produced provide a unique insider perspective on the integration challenges faced by immigrants and the contributions they make to our culture, economy, and social fabric.
The two films for the evening are “Campaign for a New American” by Qin Li, (emigrated from China) and “Borrowing Fire” by Kebrewosen Densamo (emigrated from Ethiopia).
The films will be followed by a discussion with Campaign for a New American director, Qin Li, and subject, Dimple Rana (of Indian ancestry) and Borrowing Fire director, Kebrewosen Densamo, and subject, Yonas Badi (emigrated from Ethiopia).”
Each film is ten minutes long and there will be a community discussion after the screenings. Participants will be given a set of questions to spark discussion on the night of the event.
Registration is free. Donations will be gratefully accepted to help cover the costs of this event.
What’s The Story? Stories are at the core of what we do at The House of the Seven Gables. They are not just a part of our past, but also our present and future. In 2021, we look forward to exploring the lore of our historic site and surrounding community.
