SATURDAY 10/23, 3:10 PM (SESSION 4)

Directors/Producers: George Gage, Beth Gage

Description:

In 2016, during the world’s largest refugee crisis since WWII, the conservative state of Nebraska, welcomed more refugees than any state in the U.S. They welcomed women and families tortured by war; one Nebraskan worked 10 years to rescue the Afghan interpreter who’d saved his company’s lives. In the next four years, the Trump administration reduced the number of refugees from Obama’s ceiling of 110,000 to an all-time low of 15,000. President Biden has agreed to accept 125,000 in fiscal year 2022. A Home Called Nebraska is the surprising and emotional story of refugees enjoying mid-western welcome, unlikely friendships and a re-vitalized American Dream.
