Myanmar to Milwaukee. A story unfolds right next door.
Creative production company, Circle Pictures has commenced production on their first episodic documentary, & portrait series project, working title: The Refugee Picture Project : MKE. (#RPPMKE) Inspired by the work that local non profit, SEA-Literacy Milwaukee has been doing to support and nurture refugee families living, working and improving Milwaukee one day at a time, in community.
Thanks to the efforts of MANY devoted social service organizations here locally, Milwaukee Is home to a vibrant and growing population of refugees from many war torn and heartbroken countries, Burma, now Myanmar being one of them. This project is their story, their experiences, their dreams, and what its like to have a fresh start in America. That, what we have in common and what differentiates us is actually quite beautiful, quite healing, and should be celebrated.
We will post updates when we have them to share, but in the mean time, If you'd like to volunteer either on the #RPPMKE project, simply Email Circle OR please consider volunteering & donate directly to: SEALMKE or Lutheran Social Services (All Photos courtesy of Nick Collura for Circle Pictures.
