Day 4 Film Fest – 10 days of films by and about immigrants and refugees

December 24, 2018

It’s Day 4 of Community Supported Film’s 10 day New Immigrant and Refugee Visions film festival. New Immigrant and Refugee Visions (aka NIRV, hence the 10 days of NIRVmas) is a bounty of stories about the current immigrant experience in the United States.

In these divisive times these stories have proven to transform minds and motivate action.

We want these films to influence the national immigration debate –  from town halls to the Halls of Congress, in communities both welcoming and resistant to new immigrants.

Get-the-NIRV and donate to our national screen and discuss campaign, – and thanks!

Today’s excerpt is from Kiki Densamo who emigrated from Ethiopia in 2001. Kiki brings us an excerpt from her film Borrowing Fire.

Since the U.S. military’s withdrawal from Kabul last year, the Sponsor Circle Program for Afghans has helped over 600 Afghans restart their lives. The Biden administration is preparing to turn the experiment into a private-sponsorship program for refugees admitted through the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program and is asking organizations [and individuals] to team up with it to launch a pilot program by the end of 2022.
