Join us next Wednesday for a special screening of the award-winning documentary Resistance Is Life with Director and Producer Apo W. Bazidi.


About the film:

From a refugee camp on the Turkish-Syria border, Resistance is Life features the story of 8-year-old Evlin, a Kurdish refugee who embodies the resilience of her community and hometown of Kobane against the occupation of ISIS militants. Told from her perspective, this feature-length documentary introduces the many faces of resistance over the course of eight months on both sides of the Turkish-Syrian border and provides an inside look at the extraordinary spirit behind the first major victory against ISIS militants. www.resistancemovie.com
