First Friday Film Series VI
Saint Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral
The loss of home is often complicated by long years as refugees. What does it mean to lose one’s home? What is involved in finding home? Families must often separate to thrive at all. Some face the danger of never belonging anywhere, once they are safe. Such elements of refugee-hood complicate other real issues of unemployment and isolation under other people’s sky.
In this year’s series, we join families engaged in complicates struggles. We discover what creates community and what is essential for finding home!
THIS IS HOME
This film follows four families sent to resettle in Baltimore in 2016. They have only eight months to learn English, find jobs, and become self-sufficient. The clock starts right when they land. A vast cultural divide hinders new arrivals and Americans trying to help them. Part way through the process, the President issues a travel ban. Suddenly their lives are all the more perilous.
