Salam Neighbor: Screening and Panel on Syrian Refugee Crisis

February 4, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free
The Student Global Health Committee of the Gillings School of Global Public Health will host a very special screening of Salam Neighbor, an award-winning documentary on the Syrian refugee crisis.
Come join the conversation on the refugee crisis at the screening of Salam Neighbor and the discussion following it. Q+A panel includes filmmakers Chris Temple and Zach Ingrasci and MD/MPH Dilshad Jaff. Refreshments will be provided!
In Salam Neighbor, filmmakers Chris and Zach immerse themselves and the viewer in the life of a Syrian refugee as they spend one month living alongside displaced families in a tent in the Za’atari refugee camp. Their feature-length film helps to tell the stories of our refugee neighbors with dignity and depth. They will speak after the film and take questions from the audience. We hope to bring together students, faculty and community members to learn about this current and urgent crisis.

The film has won awards such as the official selection of the American Film Institute. You can view the trailer here.
