"A testament to courage."- Filippo Grandi, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees
Inside My Heart, a film by Canadian director Debra Kellner, chronicles the lives of three families who were forced to flee Syria and Afghanistan at the peak of the refugee and migrant crisis in 2015. In the wake of witnessing unthinkable atrocities and having the lives they've known wrested away, these mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters exhibit remarkable resilience as they fight for survival.
The fly-on-the-wall approach to filming reveals the immense emotional anguish of the families as they undertake their journeys to find safety and new homes over the course of three years. They travel through countries where they do not speak the language, where their welcome is conditional, and the rules and policies are ever-changing. In bearing witness to their stories, the global refugee crisis shifts from a set of statistics about distant places to a very human struggle for survival. Any of the people featured in the film could be any one of us.
Please join us on World Refugee Day on June 20th in Toronto for a special screening of Inside My Heart, which will be attended by CARE Canada's President & CEO, Gillian Barth, and will feature light refreshments.
