Refugee Kids: One Small School Takes On the World
by Southeast Asian Mutual Assistance Association Coalition (SEAMAAC)
Join Southeast Asian Mutual Assistance Association Coalition (SEAMAAC) and Philadelphia Asian American Film & Filmmakers (PAAFF) for a screening, hosted by the South Philadelphia Library, of “Refugee Kids – One Small School Takes on the World”. This will be a short documentary that follows a student in New York City summer program for children seeking asylum from the world’s most volatile conflicts.
The film presents an intimate, emotionally gripping account of the students’ stories of escaping war and conflict and resettling in America, chronicling their triumphs and setbacks as their lives unfold over the course of one formative summer. Refugee Kids humanizes complex geopolitics and depict the challenges and urgency of immigration to America in an increasingly dangerous – and interconnected – world.
