Please note: We’re switching from our regular ‘1st Thursday’ screening dates for the next two months so we can bring you two outstanding documentaries and discussion speakers. We’re super excited about both of these events!
After Spring * Apr. 26th * Bijou * 6pm
Executive Produced by Jon Stewart, After Spring is a documentary about the Syrian refugee crisis. With the Syrian conflict now in its seventh year, millions of people continue to be displaced. This film is the story of what happens next. By following two refugee families in transition and aid workers fighting to keep the camp running, viewers will experience what it is like to live in the Zaatari, the largest camp for Syrian refugees.
Following the film we’ll be talking with Hussain Rashou, a Syrian refugee who moved to Eugene in 2016, and Tod Schneider, advocate for the Refugee Resettlement Coalition of Lane County.
