In her new documentary, Waad Al-Kateab (director of the Oscar-nominated For Sama) shows us the dramatic challenges faced by refugee athletes who competed for a place in the 2020 Olympic Games. Narrated in first person and often asking herself difficult questions, Al-Kateab listens to the athletes who have seen their dreams vanish and accompanies them through their suffering.
Includes a pre-recorded introduction from the director Waad Al-Kateab. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion on immigration with Neighbors Link, moderated by Kathleen Williamson from Films on Purpose, as well as a reception in the Jane Peck Gallery.
