Created by award-winning filmmaker Alexandra Shiva, This is Home follows four Syrian families who have left their country and are taking their first steps towards a new future in Baltimore. The film follows their initial experiences working with The Baltimore International Rescue Committee (IRC) to capture the intimate and varied struggles faced by Syrian refugees coming to an unknown city in a foreign country. After the screening, IRC Los Angeles Executive Director Martin Zogg will answer questions about his organization's work locally and abroad.
