Home Across Lands documentary

The screening of the Albany premiere of Home Across Lands refugee documentary, hosted by USCRI Albany, will take place at SUNY's Page Hall, 135 Western Avenue, on Wednesday, April 29 at 7:00 PM.

Home Across Lands chronicles the story of Kunaman refugees as they move from a refugee camp in Ethiopia to their new home in the US; it was made by an Emmy award-winning team of documentary filmmakers.

More information about the film, including how to purchase tickets, is available at USCRI Albany's website.

"USCRI Albany has been helping refugees begin new lives in the Capital Region since 2005. Refugees arrive having fled war and persecution, and must quickly adjust to new way of life in the United States."
