The stories and experiences of refugee communities are vast and diverse. In this shorts program, watch as filmmakers explore and highlight the experiences, stories, and lasting legacies of refugee communities. From their experiences building their own small businesses and community within the United States, to the second-generation young adults redefining their own relationship to America, these films capture the complexities, histories, healing, and pain of refugee communities and the futures that they have helped pave the way for.


Co-presented by Kin On

After the fall of Saigon, a young Vietnamese man travels to Paris to find his father who he has not seen since childhood. During this visit, he discovers more about his family's complicated history and how the Southern and Northern Vietnamese conflict continues to affect his life even in France.
