Saturday, June 20.
Q&A with filmmaker Mira Jargil, NPR’s Middle East correspondent Deborah Amos, HRW’s Senior Turkey Researcher Emma Sinclair-Webb, and film participant, Rana.

Film description: This is a story of love across borders, and the compromises a family must make when it is torn apart by circumstances beyond its control. When Rana and Muhkles are forced to flee the war in Syria in a desperate search for stable and secure futures for their family, they are separated from their children. Rana is in Denmark, Mukhles is in Canada, and their young sons Jad and Nidal, ages 11 and 17, are stuck alone in Turkey. Through small everyday moments captured on video calls and home movies, director Mia Jargil paints an intimate and loving portrait of a family in limbo, navigating frustrating twists and turns at the hands of Kafkaesque bureaucracies, combatting physical distance to retain familial bonds and connection.

“Reunited… shed(s) light on a family’s destiny in order to provide the debate with a human perspective and mobilize a common guard against intolerance.”
– Mia Jargil, director, Reunited

Fully subtitled in English
