In honor of World Refugee Day join the IRC in Richmond in screening two powerful documentaries that reveal the strife, struggles and incredible resilience of four individuals who were forced to flee their homeland. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
- The Interpreters follows Iraqi and Afghan interpreters who worked with U.S. forces, and who are now targeted by insurgents as a result. While some have reached safety, others are stuck in hiding—and those with no other hope have set out for Europe and the U.S. with the help of smugglers. Run time: 76 minutes https://vimeo.com/270563253
- I Am Rebecca examines the existence and welfare of the American Dream through the life and struggles of Rebecca Mabior, a mother, a nurse, and a refugee living in the Midwest. Run time: 34 minutes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdi_kdd7jRI
