The Refugee Project collaborators will screen a video short, Genesee Lights at the Unspoken Film Festival Saturday Oct 19, 2013.
Genesee Lights examines the relationship between Bosnian refugees and the city of Utica through interviews, personal narratives, and cultural events. A collaborative effort of students and teachers, our film explores how refugees revitalize the societies they become part of and specifically how Bosnians have transformed Utica over the past 20 years.
The Refugee Project is a research collaboration among students and faculty working with the Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees. The Refugee Project describes the research goals and research team members. Hamilton's Digital Humanities Initiative and the Arthur Levitt Public Affairs Center collaborated to provide student research funding for this project.
