Welcoming World Voices in West Hartford: A film festival about the contributions and challenges of immigrants, refugees and those who cross cultural borders.

Hello! West Hartford, in collaboration with our community partners, invites you to an exciting storytelling event that will be held online through WHC-TV & Zoom. The event will feature a viewing of three short documentary films by people from Bhutan (Navigating Hope, by Sayed Najib Hashimi), Somalia (Worlds Apart at Home, by Abdirahman Abdi), and Puerto Rico (Rhythms of Respect, by Katsyris Rivera-Kientz). The films will be followed by a discussion with panelists made up of local community members, film-makers and film subjects.

We believe public dialogue about migration and immigration, stimulated by these experiential films, will give members of our community an opportunity for connection, mutual understanding and ideas to take further actions. Join us!

Free and open to the public. Click here to register.
