What would you do to escape war? Violence? Persecution?
Two directors. One month. One tent. One refugee camp.
Salam Neighbor is an award-winning documentary inside the lives of people experiencing a dire humanitarian crisis. Amidst the sorrow and suffering, the film-makers discovered potential for healing and empowerment. “More than 4.8 million people have fled Syria alone to escape the atrocities of war. Right now, we are at risk of losing a generation of youth, further destabilizing the region, and perpetuating a cycle of violence and poverty,” said directors Zach Ingrasci and Chris Temple.
Sponsored by The Golden Way: Films That Make a Difference, an initiative of the St. Augustine Film Society, the film screening details the challenges faced by Syrian refugees in a Jordanian refugee camp.
This event is part of the Welcoming America Week from Sept 16th - Sept 25th.
