Focus Years: 2011 | Country: United States
"Hard Truth, Levity and Hope" is a touching short documentary film that explores the lives of refugee teens that have settled in Lowell, Massachusetts. An urban city, Lowell has been a refuge for immigrants since its birth. The latest wave of refugees are from camps in Nepal, Burma, Iraq, Somalia, Congo, Sudan, Ivory Coast, Liberia, and various other African regions. Having faced incredible atrocities in their homelands, and disparaging conditions in refugee camps, they have come to the United States seeking a new life and a chance at peace and freedom. This film follows the stories of six refugee teens who have come to Lowell with their families. They all attend Lowell High School. Many of them have faced significant gaps in their schooling and are learning English as a third, fourth, and sometimes even eighth language. We watch as they struggle to find their place in a world that is foreign to them and ultimately succeed.
