Laurier alumnus screening documentary on Rohingya genocide

A film director and Laurier alumnus will screen his documentary on the Rohingya genocide at the Brantford campus.

Yusuf Zine will be on hand next Wednesday to present “I am Rohingya: A Genocide in Four Acts.”

Essentially a play within a film, I am Rohingya invites audience members to experience the crisis in Myanmar through a play based on the stories and lived experiences of young refugees.

Zine is an actor, writer and co-founder of Innerspeak Digital Media, who began his entertainment industry career in 2006.

He graded with a Master of Arts in Social Justice and Community Engagement at Laurier in 2016.

Zine will present a lecture from 11:30 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. at the Odeon Building, room OD110.

Then, starting at 7 p.m. there will be a free, public screening of his documentary, followed by a question-and-answer period in the Research and Academic Centre – West, room RCW002.
