Movies in the Morning: 'Welcome to Vermont'

Posted: Updated:

Filmmaker Mira Niagolova tells us about her movie "Welcome to Vermont: Four Stories of Resettled Identity."

The 67-minute documentary shows us the lives of people who had to move to Vermont after they were forced out of their home countries. It follows families from Bosnia, Somalia, Iraq and Rwanda who have resettled in the Green Mountain State.

The documentary raises questions about identity, assimilation and diversity, and explores how the adaptation process differs from one ethnic group to another, from one individual to the next.

It's screening on Thu., April 3, from 6:30-9 p.m. at the Main Street Landing Film House at 60 Lake Street in Burlington. A panel discussion will follow.
