Powerful Short Film Details Life Of A Syrian Refugee In Vancouver


(via) Directed by Adam Loften and Mary Fowles, Welcome To Canada is an excellent (not to mention very moving) short film that tells the story of Mohammed Alsaleh, a young Syrian refugee granted asylum in Canada in 2014.

After fleeing torture and imprisonment by the Assad regime, he is rebuilding his life. Mohammed counsels newly-arrived Syrian refugee families with the same Vancouver-based NGO that aided him during his own resettlement process. Like Mohammed, these families have left loved ones behind and are struggling to adapt to a new land, finding resilience and hope for a new beginning. Like thousands of other newly-resettled refugees, Mohammed has been striving to bring his family to safety in Canada. Millions of Syrians are currently displaced within Syria’s borders and in neighbouring countries.
