Event Details

Ethic, Society & Law, TrinOne, and the Hart House Debates & Dialogues Committee are proud to present a screening of ‘I Am Rohingya: A Genocide in Four Acts’ followed by a Q&A with the director and cast.
The film chronicles the journey of fourteen refugee youth who take to the stage to re-enact their families’ harrowing experiences in Burman and beyond; before, during, and immediately after the escalation of military violence in their native homeland, Rakhine state; their unforgiving escape by foot and by boat to makeshift camps in Bangladesh; and their eventual resettlement in the strikingly un-familiar Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario. The film will be followed by a Q&A with the director (Yusuf Zine) and the cast.
There, the children resolve to raise awareness for a conflict that has increasingly resembled a cruel and systematic ethnic cleansing campaign — one of the most egregious and over-looked humanitarian crises in the world today. Leading up to the night of their sold-out show, the film takes audiences through the personal lives of the performers, capturing their struggles as they adjust to their new lives in Canada, and exploring the cultural background of “the most persecuted people on Earth.”
