Event Description

Join the HIAS Book and Film Club on Friday, March 26 from 12pm-1pm (9am-10am Pacific) for a discussion of "They Live Here, Now" with filmmaker Jason Outenreath. "They Live Here, Now" is an intimate fiction/doc hybrid, cinema-verite portrait of daily life for refugees from all over the world living at Casa Marianella, a volunteer driven emergency homeless shelter in East Austin, Texas serving recently arrived immigrants, endangered refugees, and asylum seekers from around the world. The filmmaker will be in discussion with Rabbi Rachel Grant Meyer, HIAS Rabbi-in-Residence, and there will be an opportunity for questions from participants, as well.

You can learn more about the film here, and you can watch it here (password: casamarianella).
