Inspired by the award-winning play of the same name, the documentary I Am Rohingya chronicles the journey of fourteen refugee youth who take to the stage to re-enact their families’ harrowing experiences in Burma and beyond, ultimately raising awareness for a conflict that has increasingly resembled a cruel and systematic ethnic cleansing campaign. With no prior acting experience, their stage production becomes a courageous act of resistance.
From 6:00 to 6:45 p.m. participants are invited to visit the exhibition Refuge Canada as preparation for this Diversity Spotlight screening.
Space is limited. Reserve your seat: https://pier21iamrohingya.eventbrite.ca
