A Teenager's View of War and Refuge
Luisa Conlon, Hanna Miller, and Lacy Jane Roberts, with an introduction by Samantha Power

"There is nothing left in this world that I haven't seen," says teenage exile Ibraheem Sarhan. The New York Times Op-Doc “We Became Fragments” follows Ibraheem's journey from the horrors of the Syrian war to his first week of school in Winnipeg, Canada. Drawing on Ibraheem's personal journal, filmmakers Luisa Conlon, Hanna Miller, and Lacy Jane Roberts allow him to narrate his own story. The film was a result of a competition sponsored by the Pulitzer Center, Op-Docs, and Tribeca Film Institute® (TFI) in April last year.
