The World Is Fine
Karim Al Rabat, 2018 | MODE Istanbul & Small Projects Istanbul (Youth Video Production Workshop) (Turkey)
Synopsis: A young Syrian man, Karim, works to rebuild his life after arriving in Istanbul. He achieves his childhood dream of becoming a baker, and he finds a community in Small Projects Istanbul. Context: This video addresses struggles common to displaced youth: the loss of friends and community, and the need to discover purpose. Uses: This video could be used in university courses on migration-related issues (or in relevant high school classes) to provide a counter-narrative to one-dimensional media portrayals of displaced youth.
