'Salam Neighbor' Screening in Palm Springs Opens Up Discussion About Refugees
By: Inity Weekly
Seven miles from war, 85,000 Syrians struggle to restart their lives inside Jordan’s Za’atari refugee camp. Viewers will be immersed into the life of a Syrian refugee through the journey of Chris and Zach as the first filmmakers in history allowed to register and be given a tent inside of a refugee camp.
From meeting Um Ali, a woman struggling to overcome personal loss and cultural barriers, to the street smart, 10-year-old Raouf, whose trauma hides just beneath his ever present smile, Zach and Chris uncover inspiring stories of individuals rallying, against all odds, to rebuild their lives and those of their neighbors.
Inity Weekly is calling on the desert communities to gather in the spirit of unity to face one of the direst humanitarian crises of our time. The goal is to place the human element at the forefront of the issues that revolve around refugees and immigrants. The screening will begin with a live poetry segment to introduce the film, and the question and answer portion following the screening will allow patrons to gain an understanding about the refugee crisis.
