IRC 2020 Refugee Film Festival Presents: Paradise Without People
April 8 @ 6:30 pm - April 8 @ 9:30 pm
Join us on April 8 for the first film of the 2020 Refugee Film Festival: Paradise Without People.
Paradise Without People
Directed by Francesca Trianni
About the Film
Taimaa and Nour are two pregnant Syrian refugees who find themselves navigating fresh marriages as they each enter motherhood while held in temporary camps. Competing with thousands of other refugees in Greece for resources, Taimaa and Nour find that parenting comes easier than either bureaucratic answers or marital bliss. Both women make desperate decisions, some with disastrous results. A feature debut from Time magazine, this portrait offers a truly distinct lens on the worldwide refugee crisis.
The IRC is joined by Francesca Trianni, Director of Paradise Without People. She is also an Emmy-nominated senior producer at Time Magazine.
About the Festival
Women are at the forefront of the global refugee crisis. Yet, their stories are rarely shared. This year, we are changing that. IRC’s Refugee Film Festival will shed light on the unique lived experiences of women whose lives have been reshaped by conflict and displacement. Join us to see three award-winning documentary films that reflect the journey, struggle, and resilience of women around the world. Each screening is followed by a discussion with an expert on the film's subject matter. 100% of each ticket purchase will go to IRC’s Women’s Resilience Center, the first-ever center for refugee women in San Diego.
