Friday Feature: Amreeka (2009)

AmreekaAlthough the Palestinian immigrant heroine of this film isn’t a refugee, it illustrates many realities you will recognize.

Family reunification can offer a built in support network, but also pressure to conform and advice skewed by cultural filters.  The portrayal of ideas around social status, class and acceptable jobs is especially relevant for many of our professional clients and those from the Middle East.

This film covers alot of serious issues with a light touch that makes this film very entertaining, at the same time.  My Dad liked it.  You can watch a Youtube trailer here.

(Every Friday we highlight one entertainment option related to our clients or some aspect of our work to help you celebrate the weekend and possibly recommend to employers and other community supporters in the following week.)
