LOGLINE

REFUGEE KIDS: ONE SMALL SCHOOL TAKES ON THE WORLD follows children from global hot spots who attend the International Rescue Committee’s summer school in preparation for making new lives in America.

SYNOPSIS

REFUGEE KIDS is a short documentary that follows newly arrived students at the New York based “boot camp” for children seeking asylum from the world’s most volatile conflicts. The film presents an intimate, emotionally gripping account of the students’ stories of escaping war and conflict and resettling in America, chronicling their triumphs and setbacks as their lives unfold over the course of one formative summer.

ARTISTIC STATEMENT

REFUGEE KIDS will humanize complex geopolitics and depict the challenges and urgency of immigration to America in an increasingly dangerous  and inter-connected  world. The film explores the 21st century version of the classic American story,  the promise of freedom, and the struggle to make it in a new land.
