Join the Refugee Team for a movie night at 6:30 pm on Friday, June 17, in the Grace Parlor. We’re watching “Rain in a Dry Land.”
Rain in a Dry Land provides eye-opening answers as it chronicles the fortunes of two Somali Bantu families, transported by relief agencies from years of civil war and refugee life to Springfield, Massachusetts and Atlanta, Georgia. As the newcomers confront racism, poverty and 21st-century culture shock, the film captures their efforts to survive in America and create a safe haven for their war-torn families. Their poetry, humor and amazing resilience show us our own world through new eyes.
The movie starts at 6:30 pm. We provide snacks, or feel free to bring your dinner with you.Share
