Iraqi Voices Film Viewing - St Paul

Event Dates: 
For three seasons, filmmaker Nathan Fisher and IARP have been working with Iraqi refugees in Minnesota to help them produce videos telling their stories. The guiding principle of the Iraqi Voices project has been to allow Iraqis to tell their own stories and to focus on what they want to tell Americans. We are looking forward to seeing you at the 2015 premiere event, which will feature a screening of 3 new short films and a discussion with the filmmakers. 
The three new documentaries in the Iraqi Voices series present a beyond-the-headlines look at Iraq in 2015. The films highlight the anti-corruption protests and demands for basic services occurring weekly in cities across Iraq, along with the dangers that middle-class Iraqi professionals continue to face as they attempt to rebuild their shattered country. 

WHEN: Monday, December 7, 2015, 7:30 pm 
WHERE: Macalester College, 1600 Grand Ave, St Paul, 55105  
Ruth Stricker Dayton Campus Center, Lower Level

Dessert and tea reception to follow. 
Event is free. Donations welcome. 

Iraqi Voices is an ongoing collaborative mentorship program that gives Iraqis in Minnesota support and training to transform their stories into high-quality documentary video shorts. The films are written and directed by Iraqi-American participants and are photographed and edited by Nathan Fisher.
