Description of Resource

This PBS film documents the Iraqi refugee resettlement to the United States. The film follows one man in particular, Maan Kaka, who is an Iraqi Christian and recently resettled from a refugee camp in Jordan to a suburban neighborhood in Portland, Oregon. The video recounts the violence towards Iraqi Christians in the Middle East and the effects of combat on Kaka's war-torn family. The film may help service providers working with Iraqi refugee youth learn more about their client's cultural background and the particular struggles Iraqi refugees may encounter during integration into the United States.
