With serious refugee crises happening around the world, the UNHCR Refugee Film Festival, which is held in Japan each autumn, is more relevant than ever. The films on the festival’s program include dramas and documentaries dealing with refugees from such diverse countries as Lebanon, Myanmar, Iraq, and Syria. Some of the films focus on how the refugees adjust to their places of refuge and cope with day to day challenges.
