Welcoming Week 2015 Film Screenings
September 17, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Ohio is one of the top 10 states in the country that resettles refugees – individuals who have fled their native country for fear of prosecution for race, religion, nationality, being part of a social group or political beliefs – and Cleveland is second in the state for helping these people call the area home.
In order to bring awareness to this growing community the Refugee Services Collaborative of Greater Cleveland (RSC) is hosting a screening of five short films that capture the transition from refugee to neighbor on September 17th at the Capitol Theatre (1390 W 65th St, Cleveland, OH 44102). The filmmakers are: Kevin Kerwin with “The Interpreter;” Chelsie Corso with “Just Keep Going;” Chris Langer with “Rangers United;” Paul Sobota with “Alida;” and Robert Banks with “Ashmita.”
