The film “Salam Neighbor” will be shown at 1 and 6 p.m. on Monday, March 20, at 1 p.m. and at 6 p.m., in Room 1200 of the MCC Stevenson Center Room 1200.
Each showing will be followed by a brief Q&A via Skype with filmmaker Chris Temple. The event is presented by the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies in Muskegon.
The film documents the experiences of American filmmakers Zach Ingrasci and Chris Temple when they lived among 85,000 Syrians in Jordan’s Za’atari refugee camp, which lies seven miles from the Syrian border.
The filmmakers, who were the first allowed by the U.N. to register and set up a tent inside a refugee camp, spent a month in Za’atari to cover what the U.N. Refugee Agency calls the world’s most pressing humanitarian crisis.
