This double feature will showcase two short documentary films, Nobel Nok Dah and This is My Home Now.

Nobel Nok Dah offers an intimate view into the lives of three refugee women from Burma, whose migratory paths cross in Thailand and eventually meet when they resettle to central New York.

This Is My Home Now documents the lives of four Montagnard youths whose families have come to America in the past decade from Asia. They live in two worlds—that of their parents and grandparents, who lived in the highlands of Viet Nam but fled from government persecution for their Christian religion and desire for autonomy—and one of constant learning and adaptation to be Americans in North Carolina.

This film screening is part of the Southern Culture Movie Series for international scholars and students, sponsored by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Summer School and organized by the Writing Center, International Student and Scholar Services and the Media Resources Center.

All screenings begin at 6:30 p.m. and are free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
