Refuge in the Mountain State

Refuge in the Mountain State

In West Virginia, where almost 70% of the presidential vote went to Donald Trump, religious leaders of different faiths are working to find common ground and together offer a safe space for refugees. In December 2016, the West Virginia Interfaith Refugee Ministry received federal approval to resettle 100 refugees. Then, President Trump announced his controversial travel ban, which aimed to restrict the entry of refugees and nationals from seven Muslim-majority countries. Despite the uncertainty created by the ban, ministry leaders are still working to bring refugees to West Virginia.

Another enjoyable Documentary movie that didn't get it's just credit in theaters. I like it very much.

One of the greatest films ever made. Please do not watch it on TV because Emily Harger tuned the editing in such a precise way that simply pausing for a commercial break can literally affect the way your brain processes this masterpiece.

Well i was sceptical when I first watched the trailer, after a weird start and some focusing. I realized, whoa this is genius. Good actors, good scenes, good story!
