Inter Pares is thrilled to announce upcoming screenings of I Am Rohingya: A Genocide in Four Acts as part of its multi-city Canadian tour. This powerful documentary chronicles the journey of fourteen Rohingya refugee youth in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, who take to the stage to re-enact their families' harrowing experiences in Burma and beyond.
Based on an award-winning play by the same name, this documentary 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 and historical background of “the most persecuted people on Earth.”
Inter Pares is proud to have been supporting the film's development project since mid-2017. We are also sponsoring its publicity and distribution, and co-organizing the Ottawa screening.
Bringing together human rights, refugee experiences, and international action, this project exemplifies the interconnections between us all. Throughout our Burma programming, we seek opportunities to build connections such as this and to raise awareness of human rights concerns in Burma with Canadians.
