COMMITTED TO CREATING A MORE RESILIENT FUTURE BY TELLING POWERFUL STORIES OF SOCIAL CHANGE
REEL WITNESS launched another short documentary, Little Rebel in 2017, about Isatou Jallow, an asylee from The Gambia. Isatou's epic and surprising path from West Africa humanizes the face of asylum and immigration in the US. Viewers will discover a rare depth of courage, dreams and altruism in the heroine of 'Little Rebel' -- who inspires us to open our hearts and reminds us of the American Dream. Little Rebel has earned multiple awards and screened at 30 film festivals around the world.
Currently RW is filming the life and story of Hameed— a young Muslim man who left everything behind in war-torn Iraq at 16, in a solo quest for a brighter more peaceable future. Hameed’s story, This Being Human, will be released in Spring 2019. Please meet our Reel Witness crew below.
