A Home Called Nebraska

October 14

This inspiring documentary shows how a Nebraska community stepped up during the refugee crisis, looking past politics to offer newcomers a genuine Midwestern welcome.

20/21 Hop Film

Through the U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program, the conservative state of Nebraska has long become the new home for innocent victims of terrorism, civil war, rape, attempted murder and persecution. In 2016, during the world's largest refugee crisis since World War II, Nebraska resettled more refugees per capita than any other state. Although this Midwest state generally skews to the political right, one volunteer in the film proclaims: "Our legacy as a country is to be welcoming, whether you're liberal or conservative." 

This heartwarming documentary offers hope and an antidote to racist nationalism: a community of people in Nebraska who work to dispel fear, build bridges and change their own perceptions along the way. As with their previous film Bidder 70, directors Beth and George Gage deliver a compelling portrait of ordinary people standing up for what is right, inspiring us to do the same. D: Beth & George Gage, US, 2020, 1h9m  Mountainfilm 2020 Festival Selection

A pre-recorded Q&A follows with directors Beth and George Gage.
