Film screening of “Salam Neighbor”

Watch two filmmakers immerse themselves in a Syrian refugee camp at a screening of Salam Neighbor Tuesday, Sept. 20, from 6 to 8 p.m. in Strosacker Auditorium.

The film follows two Americans who became the first filmmakers allowed by the United Nations to register and set up a tent inside a refugee camp. They headed seven miles from the Syrian border to live among 80,000 uprooted refugees in Jordan’s Za’atari refugee camp.

During their filmmaking, they uncovered inspiring stories of individuals rallying, against all odds, to rebuild their lives and those of their neighbors.

A Q&A session will be held following the screening. Refreshments will be provided.

The screening is sponsored by the CWRU Center for International Affairs, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, US Together (Refugee Resettlement Agency) and Carry the Future.
