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

GHOST MOUNTAIN is the story of Bunseng Taing, a Cambodian refugee who made his way to Connecticut in 1980 after surviving both the Killing Fields and a second horror never before documented. He was among 45,000 refugees who managed to escape to what they believed was safety in Thailand, only to be forced back over the Cambodian border to an area covered with landmines.
