Join us for two short documentaries about Rohingya women and children from Burma followed by a conversation with the filmmakers from both films.
Mother, Daughter, Sister is a half-hour documentary about ethnic minority women affected by rape as a weapon of war in Myanmar. Told through the eyes of four Rohingya and Kachin survivors, the film shows the brutality of the Myanmar military, the resiliency of survivors and their quest for justice and accountability.
We Are Blood is a ten minute film that follows a kindergarten teacher as she finds grace in the smiles and play of Rohingya children and dignity in the eyes of their mothers inside Bangladesh's refugee camps where a culture faces the possibility of extinction.
Both filmmakers will be present for a post screening conversation.
The event is being held in conjunction with photographer Greg Constantine’s exhibit Exiled to Nowhere: Burma’s Rohingya, on display at OJMCHE April 16 to May 26.
This event is co-sponsored by PSU's Holocaust and Genocide Studies Program, Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education and the Never Again Coalition.
Free with museum admission. For more information visit OJMCHE’s event page or email us at email@example.com
