unct_mm_news_unhcr_16 June 17

Dear reader

In observation of World Refugee Day 2017, UNHCR would like to cordially invite you to attend a free film screening on the 20th of June at the Waziya Cinema on Bogyoke Aung San Road in Yangon. Doors will open at 7:00 PM and the film will begin at 7:30 PM.

The selected film, titled ‘Cast from the Storm’, tells the heartwarming story of a group of teenage refugees who find a new home in Australia and new friendships at the Treehouse Theatre, an after-school theatre group. With the support and encouragement of their dedicated teachers, they enter into a community that supports them to share their personal stories of fleeing war and overcoming immense hardship. By transforming their tragedy into a moving stage performance, the participants move from being defined by their trauma to taking control of their futures.

You are welcome to bring guests to this event. We hope to see you on the 20th of June.


Best regards,
