    Movie Premier

    February 6, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

    Produced by Blue Chalk Media and underwritten by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, be among the first to view the release of the documentary, American Beat: Cops and Refugees join forces in Boise.  The 30-minute film weaves together three stories about a local police department’s commitment to supporting immigrants: the groundbreaking efforts of the officers to integrate and mentor refugees; the determination of a former Iraqi translator for the US Military who is putting down roots with his family and hoping to become a police officer; and the story of Boise, itself, coming together to show refugees from war-torn Africa and the Middle East that, in America, a united community can conquer tragedy and hate.

    Following the film, participate in the panel discussion on “Community Building in Boise.” Moderated by Marcia Franklin, Idaho Public Television, the panelists include:
    Chief William Bones |Officer Dustin Robinson Boise Police Department; Zeze Rwasama College of Southern Idaho, Refugee Center, Twin Falls; Julianne Donnelly Tzul International Rescue Committee, Boise; Chad Ward The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Boise; and Nilab Mohammad Mousa, Boise State University graduate, originally from Afghanistan.

    Admission is FREE, but seating is limited to the first 435 to arrive. Directors: Gail Ablow, Carnegie Visiting Media Fellow and Rob Finch, Blue Chalk Media; Philanthropic funding provided by Carnegie Corporation of New York
