Welcome to Canada is now featured on The Atlantic

Our newest short film Welcome to Canada premieres on The Atlantic today. The film, directed by Adam Loften and Mary Fowles, tells the story of Mohammed Alsaleh who was born in Hasakeh, Syria, a town he describes to be diverse and accepting. While he was finishing his medical studies in Syria, the war began. Alsaleh faced torture and imprisonment by the Assad regime and was ultimately granted asylum in Canada. “It's really hard to explain the reality on the ground in Syria,” he says in this short film. “Syrians are just caught up in the middle of this nonsense and chaos.” His new life in Vancouver includes assisting newly-arrived Syrian refugee families resettle, find new homes, and begin again.
