THIS BEING HUMAN
(13 min) Iraq/US
Director: Aimie Vallat, Guido Ronge Producer: Aimie Vallat 

A modern hero’s journey; a child of war runs the race of his life, for days cross-country, and knocks on the door of refuge. Supplicating for entrance, and turned-away twice in Turkey, finally, Hameed is granted United Nations-guaranteed safe passage, to the USA—a solo journey, leaving his home for refuge, hope and dreams. He lands in Seattle where, after eight years of no education in Iraq, he gains speed with access to resources and the classroom. It seems insurmountable, he’s dedicated and learns a third language, he encounters adversity and challenge, a foster family steps forward, and he accelerates towards higher education and loftier altruistic dreams
