The Music Box Theatre, one of Chicago’s oldest independent film venues, will screen the Small Forces film A Welcome Connection before each screening of Ai Weiwei’s new documentary Human Flow.
Our film highlights the work of local organization Exodus World Service. Exodus connects Chicagoans with arriving and newly-resettled refugees in our community. Exodus volunteers welcome refugees and help them adjust to life in America.
The journey to resettlement is very long for most refugees. Ai Weiei’s film shows the worldwide refugee crisis – and what many of our new neighbors have experienced before arriving in Chicago.
We’re grateful to have the venue to spread the word about how Chicagoans can get involved with a local organization serving refugees.
