    • IRAQI REFUGEE Ikhlass

      The American occupation of Iraq has had catastrophic costs for the Iraqi people, destroying their everyday lives, their security and their future. The UNHCR estimates that 5 million Iraqis have been displaced by the war. More than 1.3 million Iraqis are now living in Syria, many of them in neighborhoods of Damascus. The filmmakers journeyed to Damascus in 2008 to collect interviews with some of these Iraqi refugees, returning six months later for followup interviews. This is the first in a series of short films introducing audiences to the individual stories of Iraqi families broken by the war. "Iraqi Refugee Ikhlass" focuses on one Iraqi survivor and her two young daughters. Ihklass recounts the tragic story that determined her fate as a refugee, and speaks out against the American occupiers who destroyed her world. This surviving small family continues to seek resettlement in a third country.

      • Acholi Crossroads Promo

        Northern Uganda is home to one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world. For the past 20 years, the region has been ravaged by a violent civil war in which over 30,000 children were abducted to be used as child soldiers and nearly 2 million people have been forced from their homes into Internally Displaced Persons camps. The results of this war have been devastating. The Acholi tribe makes up nearly the entire population of Northern Uganda. After two decades of displacement and violence, their traditional agrarian culture has been all but decimated. At one point, nearly 90 percent of the population was living in displacement camps where they were entirely dependant on the U.N. World Food Programme to sustain them. Despite these facts, none of these statistics really seem to be news to anybody. People in the west are bombarded by tragic numbers from Africa constantly. This is nothing new. Northern Uganda has received a large amount of international attention through several Documentaries and social justice movements. These programs have chosen to highlight past atrocities in the region in an effort to raise awareness for the problems the population is facing. While there is truth in the past, there is hope in the future. Framed through the viewfinder of an anonymous medium format camera, and the resulting still photographs, “Acholi Crossroads” is slated to be a 75-minute documentary about loss and redemption in Northern Uganda. During the film, we learn about the state of flux in the region through the journeys of two key characters. Music by GIANTS Sony HDR-FX1 Hasselblad 500c Nikon D300 www.acholicrossroads.com (coming soon) *I had to cut the bit rate in half to fit the upload limit.

              In 78 countries, individuals are targeted, abused, tortured, and killed because of who they are and who they love. Many individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) have no option but to seek safety and protections as refugees. For those resettling in the United States, they are met with new challenges and obstacles, both as refugees and as members of the LGBT community. “In Our Voices: The Journeys of LGBT Refugees,” a new short video produced by Heartland Alliance International, highlights the courageous stories of a transgender refugee from the Middle East and a lesbian asylee from Central Africa.
