COMMITTED TO CREATING A MORE RESILIENT FUTURE BY TELLING POWERFUL STORIES OF SOCIAL CHANGE
insanea | HUMAN | إنسانية
Following the success of Little Rebel, and in light of the USA’s political climate, REEL WITNESS continues turning-up refugee voices of the Pacific Northwest via film. RW started filming the life of Hameed in September 2018 — a young Muslim who left everything behind in war-torn Iraq at 16, in a solo quest for a brighter more peaceable future. Now 22 Hameed’s salvation is scholarship in Seattle bound by a big altruistic dream. From flight to refuge, RW seeks to humanize the facelessness of emigration and celebrate personal tales of resiliency.
