Connecticut College is proud to sponsor a screening of the award winning documentary "Salam Neighbor." Join us as we learn about the challenges refugees face from global and local perspectives.  

As the first filmmakers allowed by the United Nations to register and set up a tent inside a refugee camp, Chris Temple and Zach Ingrasci uncover inspiring stories of individuals rallying against all odds to rebuild their lives and those of their neighbors.
 
The film lasts 75 minutes.There will be a post-screening Q&A session facilitated by Tristan Borer, professor of government and international relations and chair of the College’s recently established Committee on Refugee Relief and Education; student Jamila Ezbidi; and Cheryl Molina, representative from New London's Start Fresh refugee resettlement organization.

The event is free. Donations are encouraged and appreciated. All proceeds will directly support the resettlement of refugee families in New London. Event hosted by CC's Committee for Refugee Relief and Education in partnership with New London's Start Fresh refugee resettlement organization.

"As neighbors how we choose to respond to this crisis, will affect all of us" - Zach Ingrasci and Christ Temple, filmmakers of Salam Neighbor
