Student documentary ‘Resettled’ looks at New Haven’s refugee community

The student-created documentary “Resettled: New Haven’s Refugee Community” will be screened at Wednesday, May 3 at 7 p.m. in Rm. 102 of Linsly-Chittenden Hall, 63 High St. The event is free and open to the public.

“New Haven’s Refugee Community” is the result of a year-long project by The Politic, an undergraduate journal about global and domestic politics and culture. It explores New Haven's refugee community and advocates in a shifting political landscape. It features the voices of resettlement coordinators, community activists, and young refugees from Syria, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Iraq, all of whom live in New Haven.

A discussion with some of the refugees featured in the film will follow the screening.
