Salam Neighbor Screening: Hello Neighbor Documentary Film Series

Global Studies Center on behalf of The Ridgeway Center and Hello Neighbor. In an effort to better understand refugee life, [the filmmakers] spent one month living alongside displaced families in the Za’atari refugee camp. As the first filmmakers ever allowed by the United Nations to be given a tent and registered inside a refugee camp, [they] were able to get a never before seen look into the world’s most pressing crisis. [Their] experience uncovered overwhelming trauma but also the untapped potential our uprooted neighbors posses. With the right programs we can support healing, ease the burden on host countries and even empower the disenfranchised by unleashing people’s creativity.
