Filmed in Istanbul, Greece, and Norway, SAFE (filming-in-progress) follows the journey of Abeer, a Syrian aid worker and single mother to four daughters. Abeer is forced to separate her family in order to secure a new future for them and must come to terms with this painful decision.
Additional Information: There will be a work-in-progress screening of Safe (about 40 mins.) then a Skype + QA with the main character. This will will be followed by a session that discusses the possibilities and realities of working as a volunteer in Greece to help with the refugee crisis.
