Watch ‘Refuge: Human Stories From the Refugee Crisis’

An award-winning short documentary consisting of interviews with Syrian refugees upon their arrival in Lesvos, Leros and Athens, Greece in January 2016. Produced my Matthew K. Firpo. 20 minutes.

From Magna Carta the film’s production company:

The Refuge Project was born from a desire to learn more. We had watched the news, heard the reports, and seen the photos of despair and loss from the shores of the Aegean, but we were left wanting to know more about the people living these headlines.

We wanted to know more about their stories, about what they had lost, what they had left behind, and where they hoped their lives were headed. While news coverage focused on the problem, it often forgot about the human being, so we set out to discover a human story.

The world was changing and we found ourselves at a crossroads in history. We wanted to help in the best way we knew, so we began to document what we saw, and the stories of the people we met. In January 2016, over several weeks on location in Greece, we created The Refuge Project, a multimedia chronicle of human stories from the European refugee crisis, focused on humanity and hope.
