Chris is a husband and father, a veteran, and until recently, a leader in the KKK. He started hating Muslims when the planes hit the Twin Towers on 9/11. But when Chris receives a text from Muslim refugee, Heval, he is forced to confront his hate. Refuge illustrates the false promises of hate and reveals that where there is love, there is refuge. Set in the most diverse square mile in America—Clarkston, Georgia—Refuge follows a Syrian Kurd, a former Klansman, and a town of refugees who seek belonging in a country that blames them for its problems.

The Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers is a program of South Arts. This screening is supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and through partnerships with Working Films, Cucalorus and WHQR.
