This screening will be the two-hour version of the film which aired on FRONTLINE, the PBS documentary series.

Composed of footage shot largely by refugees themselves on camera phones distributed by the director over the course of a full year, the film offers migrants a rare opportunity to speak in their own voices and to exercise an unusual degree of control over their representation on screen. By following a trio of protagonists of different ages, classes, and family situations from Syria, Afghanistan, and Gambia, the documentary emphasizes both the social diversity and shared humanity of refugees seeking a new life in Europe. In multiple languages with English subtitles. (Digital Presentation)
