Hello! West Hartford, and its community partners, would like to invite you to attend an exciting storytelling event that will be held online through Zoom and viewable on WHCi.
We will show three short documentary films by and about people from Bhutan, Somalia, and Puerto Rico, followed by a panel discussion with film-makers, film subjects and local community members. Our hope is that this public dialogue about migration and immigration,
stimulated by the experiential films, will give participants an opportunity for connection, understanding, and ideas for supportive actions.
