Presented as part of the 2022 Waterloo Region Migration Film Festival.

Watch from the comfort of your own home, and join us for a live Q&A with the author after the film!

Registrants will be sent the link prior to the event.

Aleem Karmali is an independent documentary filmmaker and writer from Edmonton. His latest film is Thrown into Canada: The Settlement of Asian Refugees from Uganda, which marks the 50th anniversary of Idi Amin’s expulsion of South Asians from Uganda, and explores the first major movement of non-European refugees to Canada. Through his company Crescent Productions, Aleem’s films generally explore historical subjects relating to the intersections of diversity, culture and religion, with a particular focus on the contributions of Muslim cultures and civilizations to the world, as well as reflecting on pluralism in Canadian society.
