EXODUS: OUR JOURNEY TO EUROPE
The first episode in a 3-part series, Exodus follows a group of Syrian refugees as they make the journey to Europe. Equipped with their own cell phones and cameras, Syrians from all ages document their terrifying and extraordinary experiences on overpacked dinghy’s, in the homes of human smugglers and in camps in foreign lands. A suspenseful combination of video diaries, interviews, and Iphone footage, this film takes us deep inside the migration crisis to reveal its human core.
Join us after the screening for a panel and Q&A with our nonprofit partners War Child Canada, Lifeline Syria and Matthew House Toronto! Stay as we discuss the global refugee crisis and what you can do to help.
Plus visit the CONVERSATION ROOM after the film and learn how you can turn your passion into action. Stop in for coffee and snacks, discuss the issues, make a donation, volunteer and become more knowledgeable about the things you care about.
