Event: Doc Spot Fim Series: Seeking a Safe Haven: DFW Refugee Stories
About this Event
Seeking a Safe Haven: DFW Refugee Stories is a 23-minute short film based on interviews with local refugees and refugee service providers, with a particular focus on how former refugees make sense of their identities, as well as the challenges and successes they face after re-settlement here in Dallas-Fort Worth.
Seeking a Safe Haven is directed by two UNT faculty, Dr. Jacqueline Ryan Vickery (Media Arts Department) and Dr. Hadidja Nyiransekuye (Department of Social Work). The film’s themes are timely and relevant to our current socio-political moment and should generate a lot of interest and conversation.
Dr. Vickery and Dr. Nyiransekuye will participate in a discussion panel following the film.
