IWC Volunteers, consider this your homework before your next shift! This mini-series gives us a better understanding of how much trauma our asylum seekers have gone through.
Series made by Anne Lewis and stories are told by Jennifer Harbury, who recounts her encounters with asylum seekers and border patrol.
Anne Lewis, the documentarian, says it best:
“My greatest hope is that in forgiving our flawed material, you realize that you must bear witness yourself. Perhaps it’s good that it’s not art; it’s not complete. Fill it yourself, not with guilt that confines itself to an inward gaze, but with the rage of perception that makes change.”
