    A film by Nick Francis (www.speak-it.org) & Marc Silver (www.marcsilver.net) An intimate portrait of Omar, a 17 year old stranded in a refugee camp since the 2011 war in Libya. The film offers a unique perspective of one person amongst thousands waiting for a chance to start their life again in a safe country. When war broke out earlier this year in Libya, thousands of refugees from countries such as Somalia, Sudan, and Eritrea, who were living in or transiting through the country at the time, were forced to flee for their lives yet again. They are now waiting in refugee camps along the Tunisian and Egyptian borders - unable to return home due to war or persecution, unable to return to Libya due to ongoing violence and discrimination, and unable to stay in Tunisia or Egypt, countries both undergoing their own political upheavals. Part 2 of Omar's story is here ... https://vimeo.com/47612730 ... Rain is Beautiful

        • Iraqi Refugees: Life in the Shadows

          It's the fifth anniversary of the Iraq War and with talk of it not being even half-way through, we are approaching the 4000th American combat death. More importantly, a recent World Health Organization report based on Iraqi Health Ministry figures estimated that 151,000 Iraqi civilians were killed between March 2003, the start of the invasion, and June 2006. Many of the reports of civilian deaths are disputed. What cannot be argued, however, is another grave consequence of the Iraq War: the displacement crisis as a mass exodus of Iraqis flee the instabilities and ever-increasing sectarian violence at home, tearing their families apart. In mid-January 2008, with the support of the United Nations High Commission For Refugees (UNHCR), I traveled to Amman, Jordan to photograph and record a few of these families trapped in a no-man’s land; asylum seekers looking for refuge, too afraid to return to their blood-soaked country. Here are a few of their stories.

                UPDATE!!!!! Thanks to many who devoted time and energies to stopping the Cessation Clause, as of Jun 30, 2013, only 3 of the 12 countries who were to institute the clause have decided to do so- Malawi, The Republic of the Congo and Zimbabwe. WE STILL URGE PEOPLE TO PRESSURE THESE GOVERNMENTS and we hope "Stateless" was of some help in this cause. In June of 2013, the UNHCR along with many countries in Africa have decided that the 18 years refuge they have offered the Rwandan refugees since the Genocide is going to stop and the refugees must go home. The refugees have well founded fears that they will be persecuted, jailed or even killed by the regime now running the country. Their fears a well founded- watch the film to know why!
