We are delighted to stream Lamya’s Poem at no charge to MS/HS students through ISLA’s partnership with UPF! ISLA will host the student watch party (teachers, parents and youth mentors are invited too!) on Thursday, September 1 for students aged 12+.
Lamya’s Poem is a powerful 2-D animated film about a present-day 12-year old Syrian refugee who meets a young Rumi in her dreams. She has to help him unlock his voice and write his poetry. It is a film about loss and hope.
