Movie Monday: "The Sea Between Us"

Published Kayla Coleman - Tue, 05/10/2016 - 5:20pm


As part of our Movie Monday series, we will be showing the 2016 documentary "The Sea Between Us."  Set primarily on the Greek island of Lesvos, "The Sea Between Us" accounts the arrival of Syrian, Afghani, and Iraqi immigrants on Lesvos after fleeing their home countries and crossing the Aegean Sea. Through a series of interviews we are introduced to immigrants young and old as they recount the destruction of their home countries, the perilous smuggler led journey by boat, and their hopes for the future in Europe. Rescue and relief workers also speak on their experiences and what solidarity in an immigration crisis truly looks like. Discussion of the film will follow.
