Filmmakers responsible for the award-winning documentary “Salam Neighbor” will be at Tennessee Tech University Thursday, Sept. 28 to present their work and lead a discussion at 6 p.m. in the Derryberry Hall auditorium.
Filmmakers Chris Temple and Zach Ingrasci spent one month living alongside displaced families in the Za’atari refugee camp. Their experience uncovered trauma, but also untapped potential of these uprooted people.
The resulting work, “Salam Neighbor,” is an award-winning feature documentary and campaign to connect the world to refugees. Its goal is to tell the stories of refugees with dignity and the depth.
On Thursday, audiences will have a chance to watch the documentary and participate in a discussion with Temple and Ingrasci afterwards.
This is a Center Stage event made possible by the university’s general education fund. It is free and open to the public.
Derryberry Hall is located at 1 William L. Jones Drive, Cookeville.
