Documentary about a play follows local Rohingya refugees
Play was acted in by young Rohingya refugees now living in Kitchener and Waterloo
The documentary called I Am Rohingya: A Genocide in Four Acts captures how a play about the ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya from Myanmar came to be.
The play was acted in by young Rohingya refugees all born or raised in refugee camps in Bangladesh and now living in Kitchener-Waterloo.
The documentary follows the group of young people as they put together the play that tells their families' stories.
CBC K-W's The Morning Edition host Craig Norris spoke to Yusuf Zine, the director of the play and the documentary, and Ahmed Ullah, one of the actors.
The film screens at the Theatre of the Arts at University of Waterloo Sunday night, followed by a question and answer session with the cast and crew.
