AZADI centers on a workshop where seven refugee women gather for two weeks to learn multimedia skills in an effort to improve their employability. Simultaneously, three of these women open their lives to explain where they came from (and how they arrived), but more importantly how they are embracing their new home and striving to contribute to their communities. This film presents a unique look into a situation that is rarely discussed, but around us every day. These wonderful refugees live among us, and we feel that Azadi is a film that can bring more insight and love to an important subject. We have found through festival and private screenings that this film can inspire the viewers and encourage them to embrace refugees as their welcome neighbors and valuable community members. Further, the film demonstrates the value in storytelling as a therapeutic tool for the refugees themselves.
