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!
