Layla Wu, a videographer with our partners at the Media Arts Center, produced this fantastic video that sums up the experience of World Refugee Day at the Museum of Photographic Arts.

I presented a photo essay at the event about a deaf refugee from Burma struggling to learn to communicate in the United States. And, I was joined by a star-studded cast of photographers and filmmakers.

To get a feel for the event, please check out Layla’s video:
