Rain is Beautiful: one refugee’s journey

Posted on August 17, 2012



Catch a glimpse of this stunning, touching and insightful documentary by Nick Francis (speak-it.org) & Marc Silver (marcsilver.net). The film features Omar, a Somali refugee who fled the war in Libya last year to live in a camp on the country’s border with Tunisia.

This episode of his story, Rain is Beautiful, begins with emotional farewells at the camp as Omar leaves his friends behind to begin a new life in Sandviken in northern Sweden. He is met at Stockholm airport by the Swedish migration board, visits a doctor, gets his ‘right to remain’ signed and learns what margarine is.
