Event Description

You’re invited to the Los Angeles Premiere of “The Story Won’t Die,” a powerful film by the award-winning director David Henry Gerson exploring the lives of nine Syrian artists — and refugees — who fled their country’s civil war. Especially in light of the Afghanistan crisis and the ongoing challenges at our southern border, this film elevates the work HIAS does every single day with refugees and asylum seekers from around the world.  

"What meaning does free expression have for someone in exile? Who is there to see or hear? Where can words and images resonate? How do you make a community in exile? These are some of the questions that the artists ask themselves and that ‘The Story Won’t Die’ explores." — The National Endowment of the Arts
