Additional Information:

65.6 million men, women, and children are displaced due to spiraling crises around the world. This film screening event will explore the hardships faced by 99% of those refugees fighting to survive in resettlement camps with little hope of ever returning home. 

The award-winning documentary, Salam Neighbor, follows two filmmakers who fully embed themselves in a Syrian refugee camp to chronicle the lives of their displaced neighbors and provide an intimate look at the world's most dire humanitarian crisis.

This free 3-part film screening series is being held to raise awareness about the June 2nd, 2018 One Journey Festivalan all-day celebration held at the National Cathedral to celebrate refugee talents, stories, and accomplishments through food, fashion and music. The festival is a partnership of the Washington National Cathedral, NOVA Friends of Refugees, and Refugees International.
