Movie Night at the Flicks:
Thursday, July 15, 7pm
Ready for an eye-opening movie night? The Agency for New Americans invites you to attend the screening of "This is Home" on Thursday, July 15, 2021 at 7pm at The Flicks.
The Agency for New Americans is hosting the movie, This is Home, about how struggling families find their footing during the resettlement process. This movie follows the International Rescue Committee to help the families become self-sufficient. The process at The Agency for New Americans is very similar and it is a good representation of what families have to go through once they arrive in the US. They attend cultural orientation classes and job training sessions where they must "learn America" -- everything from how to take public transportation to negotiating new gender roles. Their strength and resilience are put to the test. Through humor and heartbreak, this universal story illuminates what it's like to start over, no matter the obstacles. THIS IS HOME goes beyond the statistics, headlines, and political rhetoric to tell deeply personal stories, putting a human face on the global refugee crisis.
