The Peace Between
The Peace Between is a 2019 short documentary film that looks beyond the word “refugee” as a political and divisive term, and explores 3 friendships which open a space for honest and sympathetic conversations about Europeans and refugees living in community together. The Film is directed by Caroline Kamya and produced by Talitha Brauer, Dylan Klass, Suzanna Klaucke, and Caylee Cowan. The filmmakers explore this concept through the lives of 6 characters (Yona Abera, Sophie Alibert, Dana Albittar, Anna Maria Blicher Skanborg, István Horváth, and Raza)in 3 cities: Budapest, Hungary, Copenhagen, Denmark , and Brest, France. They each looked beyond the word "refugee" as a political and divisive term to learn what it originally meant: a person who had to flee from their home, leaving behind family and friends, who is now hoping to build a new life.
