Rain in a Dry Land

May 05, 2014— 5:00 pm

rain-in-a-dry-landOn Monday evening, May 5th at 5:00 p.m. in Callahan Hall we will be showing the award-winning documentary film, Rain in a Dry Land.  We are partnering with YPLAA for this event which is part of their currently ongoing Y-Not campaign.  Y-Not? is a program that immerses participants into a variety of areas within the community. A civic engagement and grass roots economic development program designed to educate, motivate, and recruit the next generation of community leaders. This free film presentation is open to the entire community.

Rain in a Dry Land presents the story of two Somali Bantu families, refugees from the 1991 civil war in Somalia, who find new homes in urban America.  It begins as the families prepare to leave the Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya and follows them for their first two years of life in the United States.  This film is in English and Somali with English subtitles.

A panel discussion and some light Somali fare will follow the showing of the 82-minute film.  For more information, contact the LPL Reference Desk at 513-3135 or
