1 Min Excerpt! Film 8 of 10 – A feast of films by and about immigrants and refugees

December 24, 2018


It’s Day 8 of Community Supported Film’s 10 day New Immigrant and Refugee Visions (NIRV) film fest. 

Today, Abdirahman Abdi brings us an excerpt from his world in Worlds Apart at Home. Abdi emigrated as a refugee from Somalia in 2007. 

 

 

NIRV is a bounty of stories by new immigrants and about the current immigrant experience in the United States.

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

Get-the NIRV and influence the national immigration debate –  from town halls to the Halls of Congress, in communities both welcoming and resistant to new immigrants.

Screen these films in your community and donate to our national screen and discuss campaign – and thanks!

“This video is about street kids because:
• Streets kids are under a lot of mental pressure;
• They lose the chance to get an education;
• The likelihood that they will be recruited by insurgent groups and gangs is high;
• They should play but they work.
There are thousands of kids on the street who make a living by begging, waxing shoes, washing cars and much more.”

From a colleague in Afghanistan: Kabul city is currently surrounded by those wild creatures in this black forest. Those predators have become more savage and unrestrained than before.
