Screening  |  In Search of A Nation + panel discussion

Saturday, April 22, 2017, 2–5 pm

The Anne Frank Project and the Burchfield Penney Art Center are pleased to announce a screening of In Search of a Nation, a documentary film about the Bhutanese-Nepali experience of refugees looking for a place to call a home. 

"This movie, Desh Khojdai Janda (In Search of a Nation), is based on a true story of Bhutanese refugees and is dedicated to all the refugees across the world. As Bhutanese, the makers of this film request viewers to ponder this genuine question: How can the nation of Bhutan claim peace and happiness when it was once one of the highest refugee-generating countries of the world?" 

Following the film, a panel discussion will take place with local leaders of Buffalo's Immigrant and Refugee community and the Artistic Director of the film. They will  discuss aspects of the film and the refugee experience of coming to the United States of America.

Panelists include: 

Parladah Gurung, Artistic Director of In Search of a Nation
Rubens Mukunzi, Publisher at Karibu News 

Lamin Tamang, Bhutanese-Nepali Community of Buffalo

Win Min Thant, Education Coordinator of SUNY Buffalo State's Community Academic Center
