Tales of perseverance, grit and forgiveness show us the diversity of what the road of recovery from imperialism can look like. From a refugee recalling his past in GHOST MOUNTAIN to IN THIS LAND WE'RE BRIEFLY GHOSTS sharing the story of imprisoned child soldiers in Myanmar, and contemporary challenges with ICE in KEEP SARAY HOME, this program highlights Southeast Asian Americans as a complex, hard-won identity.

Co-presented by Khmer Health Board Seattle

It's Myanmar in 2013. A 12-year-old Burmese child soldier, imprisoned for deserting battle, is forced to either kill her older brother, a fellow deserter, or die alongside him. Based on actual events. (Content Warning: War, Death, State Violence)
