Event Description:

Short film about Burmese refugees in Indianapolis followed by a panel discussion highlighting the challenges and joys one faith community experienced as they sought to support their new neighbors.  

Indianapolis is home to approximately 16,000 Burmese refugees making it one of the largest Burmese communities in the United States. This short documentary explores how for the past ten years First Baptist Church has worked to share life with First Karen Baptist Church. After the screening, the filmmakers will speak to their experience of shaping and framing the film’s narrative so that the Burmese refugee community would hold power in telling their own story.

A limited number of metered parking spaces are available on campus. Garage parking can be found at the Sunset Avenue Garage near Clowes Hall. (3-4 minute walk.)

Walk-ins welcome, but RSVPs encouraged by Nov. 10

Presented by Desmond Tutu Center for Peace, Reconciliation, and Global Justice; First Baptist Church; First Karen Baptist Church; and Burmese Community Center for Education.
