As we feature Refugee Friendship Month during the month of June, we encourage folks to patripate in events that will help us welcome refugees into our communities. One event is watching the film Harem.
After daringly crossing the Canadian border looking for a better life, a Kurdish artist (Harem) grapples with what truly makes a place home.
Drawing parallels between the precarious nature of the creative process and making a life in a new country, this film uses Harem’s art to re-imagine his experiences, fears, and hopes of one day living a good life in Canada with his family.
Experience what it is like to be a refugee claiming assylum through this 18 minute documentary and special Q&A with Harem.
The film will be shown after the Evening service in the Mount Pleasant Santuary.
Shot, directed and edited by Daniel Negatu
