Hello Neighbor is excited to announce our next community event, a screening of the award-winning documentary, Salam Neighbor, about a Syrian refugee camp in Jordan and the stories of people living there working to rebuild their lives. This event is free and open to the public but we do ask you to RSVP in advance!
In an effort to better understand refugee life, the filmmakers of Salam Neighbor spent one month living alongside displaced families in the Za’atari refugee camp. As the first filmmakers ever allowed by the United Nations to be given a tent and registered inside a refugee camp, they were able to get a never before seen look into the world’s most pressing crisis. Their experience uncovered overwhelming trauma but also the untapped potential our uprooted neighbors posses. With the right programs we can support healing, ease the burden on host countries and even empower the disenfranchised by unleashing people’s creativity.
We recommend at a minimum age 12 and up for this screening.
