Marymount’s Ballston Auditorium

Please join the One Journey Festival for a free screening of PBS POV’s Voices of the Sea. The film will be followed by a panel discussion on the global refugee crisis and a short Q&A session. Our panelists will tell their stories and navigate the dizzying complexities of the refugee crisis.
Revealing stark realities for the poorest of rural Cubans with unique access and empathy, Voices of the Sea is the story of a 30-something mother of four longing for a better life. The tension between wife and aging husband—one desperate to leave, the other content to stay—builds into a high stakes family drama after her brother and the couple’s neighbors escape.
This benefit event is a One Journey Festival collaboration with Marymount University, NOVA Friends of Refugees, CAVA, and POV, the award-winning independent non-fiction film series on PBS.
