#MeWeSyria: Movie trailer

Check out the trailer for the #MeWeSyria films produced by the Syrian refugee youth in the Me/We communications worships. Trailer produced by Lucas McGhee from Young Eyes.

The opening of the Me/We Exhibition is today. Been up all night editing and getting the films and Young Eyes Gallery ready.

I am also nervous to see how some of the refugee youth will react to seeing thier final films on screen.

Just led my final ‪#‎MeWeSyria‬ communications workshop with the boys group in ‪the #‎Zaatari‬ refugee camp w/ Questscope. Some of the youth are bummed our program is almost over, but they are buzzing with excitement and confidence in the stories, messages and films we pulled together. The‪#‎refugee‬ youth have taken brave steps in breaking mental walls for expression, communications & imagination over the last month. I am in awe of the resilience and love within these kids. I am so proud to have gotten to work with them. In total, the boys and girls groups have finished writing, directing and filming 6 short stories—each with key messages and lessons, and of course NO politics. While the politics of the world may fail their homeland, the youth of Syria will not fail our world.

#MeWeSyria exhibition at Young Eyes gallery is this Saturday, 14-22 June. I am also putting on a screening in the refugee camp on Monday. Keep these beautiful kids in your prayers. Stay tuned for more and click on #MeWeSyria on Twitter to learn more…
