This is a critical moment, with more refugees today than anytime in the last century. In Syria alone, more than 4 million people have fled the country to escape the atrocities of war. Right now, we are at risk of losing a generation of youth, destabilizing the region, and perpetuating a cycle of violence and poverty.

In an effort to better understand refugee life, Zach Ingrasci and Chris Temple, co-founders of Living On One, spent one month last winter living alongside displaced families in the Za’atari refugee camp. As the first filmmakers ever allowed by the United Nations to be given a tent and registered inside a refugee camp, Zach and Chris were able to get a never before seen look into the world’s most pressing crisis.

The experience uncovered overwhelming trauma but also the untapped potential our uprooted neighbors posses. With the right programs we can support healing, ease the burden on host countries and even empower the disenfranchised by unleashing people’s creativity.

Deadline to purchase tickets is January 7th. Hope to see you there!
