Sunday Rainday

Sunday Rainday Group 2

Sunday Rainday. Spent it interviewing and filming our Syrian friends and some of their children, all refugees here in Germany. Like the day itself, the many hours together alternated from smile and laughter to silence and weeping, from running through puddles to crying them. Children missing their fathers held in detention camps in far away lands, mothers cradling infants born in camps, the ache for asylum, for the right to go to school and to work, for listening hearts who will honor their stories. A sacred day.
