Film Series Integrating Refugees: Understanding A Global Question

This event is a mini film series of five films (documentary and features) that engage questions and issues surrounding migration, identity and cultural integration. Through a focus on individual stories and events from Germany, Russia, China, Italy and Latin America, the series will offer a comparative exploration of global sociopolitical questions about refugees with an eye to humanizing those questions and seeing through them different national approaches to refugees.
