Join the University of Virginia, Charlottesville for their last of a three-part film series about the global refugee crisis —its tragic scale and impact. They are screening 2 short documentaries showing the difficulties of displacement caused from the Syrian Refugee Crisis.

4.1 Miles is an Oscar-nominated documentary that follows a day in the life of Kyriakos Papadopoulos, a captain in the Greek Coast Guard who is caught in the middle of the biggest refugee crisis since WWII. Follow his journey on how he and his crew are working to save thousands of refugees from drowning in the Aegean Sea. The screenings will be followed by panel discussions and information on refugee organizations throughout Charlottesville.
