BENEFITING: THE WINDHOVER FORUM

Grazyna Kolondra

THE STORY:

CROSSING DESERT AND SEA is a character-driven documentary that explores how art can be used to heal, empower and generate hope in Syrian and Iraqi refugee children -- children who have no home, no school and no where to go, and have been traumatized, silenced and emotionally scarred by the brutal wars within their home country's borders. 

This documentary aims to inspire social change by raising awareness about one of the biggest humanitarian crises of our time.  For more information about this project, please visit the official web page: Crossing Desert and Sea.

Donations are tax-deductible.  You may donate through this website or by a check payable to: The Windhover Forum. Checks should include Crossing Desert and Sea on the memo line, and be sent to: The Windhover Forum, c/o Latham & Watkins LLP, 335 S. Grand Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90071, Attn: Michael Feeley. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This project is co-produced with Michael Taylor, the founder and executive director of USC Media Institute for Social Change.

Filmmaker Grazyna Kolondra and artist Lara Salmon have already made two trips to Jordan to meet with United Nations agencies, and have done some preliminary filming and conducted interviews with Syrian and Iraqi children in the Za’atari and Azraq refugee camps and local chuches. Our goal for this campaign is to raise $75,000, which will be used to cover costs associated with our next phase of production in Jordan. On our next trip, we will be joined by experienced art therapist Sama Wareh, who has worked with refugee children in Lebanon, and we look forward to providing the children with the tools they need to express their cross-cultural experiences through drawing, painting and photography.

Please LIKE the official Facebook page, share the page with your friends, and invite them to support this campaign too: Crossing Desert and Sea.  

THANK YOU! 

Grazyna Kolondra is an MFA student (Class of 2016) in the Film & Television Production program at the USC School of Cinematic Arts, and is proud to support this project through, and have this project supported by, Trojans Helping Trojans, a platform spreading awareness of Trojan crowdfunding projects. To check out more projects and/or to find out how to create your own, click here: Trojans Helping Trojans.
