This is Home: A Refugee Story (2018)

Meeting Rooms A & B Combined
Wednesday, Sep 11, 6:30pm to 8:30pm

"This is Home" (2018) is an intimate portrait of four Syrian refugee families arriving in America and struggling to find their footing. With only eight months of help from the International Rescue Committee to become self-sufficient, they must forge ahead to rebuild their lives in a new home: Baltimore, Maryland. They attend cultural orientation classes and job training sessions where they must "learn America" -- everything from how to take public transportation to negotiating new gender roles.
The documentary is 91 minutes long, with a brief, optional discussion following the showing.

This event is part of a series which supports the book launch of Green Card Youth Voices: Immigration Stories from Madison and Milwaukee High Schools​. Generous financial support for this series is provided by the Friends of the Lakeview Library and the Friends of the Sequoya Library, with funding for the Green Card Youth Voices--Madison exhibit with a grant from the Beyond the Page Endowment Fund.
