Fellow RPCVs and Friends!

Friends of Jordan and Bloombars are teaming up to present an award-winning film and campaign to connect the world to refugees. You should definitely come see this. Here are the details:

Salam Neighbor (2015, 75min), a film by Zach Ingrasci and Chris Temple, is an award-winning documentary that follows two filmmakers who fully embed themselves in Za'atari, a Syrian refugee camp in northern Jordan, providing an intimate look at the world's most dire humanitarian crisis. The film immerses us in the life of a Syrian refugee through the journey of Chris and Zach, the first filmmakers allowed by the United Nations to register and set up a tent inside a refugee camp. (In English and Arabic, with English subtitles).

The screening will be followed by audience discussion led by Returned Peace Corps Volunteers who served in Jordan.

*Suggested Donation: $10. Proceeds support BloomBars to continue to offer the BloomScreen Indie Film Night, which is a weekly series of independent and foreign films, accompanied by discussions with filmmakers, experts and other guests. Free organic popcorn.
