A documentary about a Syrian teenager who settles in Los Angeles after fleeing the war and tries to adapt as a young Muslim refugee.
“Dalya’s Other Country tells the story of members of a family displaced by the Syrian conflict who are remaking themselves after the parents separate. Teenager Dalya goes to Catholic high school and her mother, Rudayna, enrolls in college as they both walk the line between their Muslim values and the new world in which they find themselves.” — PBS POV
When to watch: “Dalya’s Other Country” will premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 17th. The following week, it will also air as part of PBS POV Documentary series on June 26th at 9:00pm.
Take Action: Organizations can live tweet the film to show the human impact of Trump’s harmful policies and share facts about refugees to refute false claims. PBS is co-presenting the film with the Center for Asian American Media.
