The IPED program will be screening two acclaimed documentaries about the modern refugee crises in the Economics Conference Room.
The Resettled (2016)
America is a nation that was built by immigrants and refugees, but are strangers from a foreign land welcome here today? The Tzu Chi USA-produced documentary takes us to Detroit, San Francisco, Boise, Twin Falls, and New York, and introduces refugees resettled from Iraq, Burma, Vietnam, Congo, and Liberia, who share their dramatic stories of survival and elusive search for the American dream.
Five acclaimed photographers travel the world (Greece, Colombia, Cameroon, Myanmar, Germany) to provide detailed insight into the difficult conditions faced by refugees who dream of a better life.
This event is open to alumni, faculty/staff, students, and the public.
