Summary

Refugee rights have been at the core of 3 Generations' work since we covered the genocide in Darfur in the film The Devil Came On Horseback in 2007. Our feature Lost in Lebanon was part of our multi-part coverage of the Syrian refugee crisis. A Refugee's Journey tells the story of a Rohingya Muslim fleeing Myanmar. Currently we are working on the stories of Yazidi women captured during the genocide against their people and forced into slavery in ISIS. We have filmed refugees in 8 countries.

Challenge

The global refugee crisis is growing. Today there are over 70 million people across the world who are displaced from their homes or their country of origin. Each one has an important story to tell. Geo-political and health crises like Covid-19 only make the challenges refugees and their hosts and advocates face even harder. Economic uncertainty breeds intolerance. Ignorance and lack of empathy worsens an already complex problem.

Solution

We bring the stories of individual refugees to life and light. Our films reach broad audiences and have a global impact. By utilizing our diverse multi-media resources, our films take audiences beyond the daily news headlines. Our work shows the experiences, the joy, the dreams, and the community in the lives of refugees. We create short, beautiful, testaments to the humanity behind situations most of us can only understand as distant and disturbing news items.

Long-Term Impact

Our films have proven track records as being impactful in several ways: they raise awareness, they educate audiences, they are calls to action and they foster empathy and compassion for refugees. Additionally they serve as records for the future. They exist in perpetuity as evidence for the future of mankind.
