The Paradise That Wasn’t
Congolese artist Evodie Ngoy, from Wide Angle Youth Media, will present her latest short animated film, The Paradise That Wasn’t, that documents Ngoy’s experience attending Baltimore public school as a refugee. Following the screening, Ngoy will join a panel of community leaders, including Kursten Pickup, Refugee Youth Project Coordinator, and Dr. Martin Ford, Director of Maryland Office for Refugee and Asylees, to discuss the social, economic, and political experience of refugee youth in Baltimore. Wide Angle Youth Media provides Baltimore young people with media education to tell their stories and become engaged with their communities.
