IIHA Event: Documentary Screening of Refugee Kids: One Small School Takes On the World

For the next event in IIHA’s spring 2016 event series, Challenges & Opportunities: Global Migration in the 21st Century, IIHA will host a documentary screening of Refugee Kids: One Small School Takes On the World followed by Q&A with the film’s directors.

This short documentary follows students at a New York City summer program for children seeking asylum from the world’s most volatile conflicts. The film presents an intimate, emotionally gripping account of the students’ stories of escaping war and conflict and resettling in America, chronicling their triumphs and setbacks as their lives unfold over the course of one formative summer. Refugee Kids humanizes complex geopolitics and depict the challenges and urgency of immigration to America in an increasingly dangerous – and interconnected – world.

Light refreshments will be served.

  • Date & Time: Tuesday, April 5th at 6pm
  • Location: Fordham University | Room 902 | Lowenstein Building | 113 W. 60th Street, New York, NY 10023
