Joins us for a special screening of Amanda Bailly’s enlightening documentary “8 Borders, 8 Days,” and a post-film panel discussion regarding the ongoing refugee crisis in Syria and the world.

About the film:
“A single mother shows us the consequences of closing America’s doors to families fleeing war. With no answer to her application for resettlement in the US, and every other path to safety closed off, a smuggler’s raft to Europe was the only way out. 8 Borders, 8 Days is her story; the intimate details of why a fiercely-determined mother is willing to risk her children’s lives for a better future and an immersive experience of their eight-day journey to safety.”
