New Film EXODUS Provides Unique Window into Lives of Rohingya Refugees: Documentary from Fortify Rights and Doha Debates released worldwide today," Fortify Rights, August 25, 2021, https://mailchi.mp/fortifyrights/new-film-exodus-provides-unique-window-into-lives-of-rohingya-refugees?e=24e6ca1455, reported, "Fortify Rights and Doha Debates today released EXODUS, a 23-minute documentary film that delves into the lives of three young Rohingya refugee photographers from Myanmar living in one of the world’s largest refugee camps.

            The film follows the stories of Omal Khair, Dil Kayas, and Azimul Hasson, three Rohingya survivors of genocide forced from their homes in Rakhine State during Myanmar-military-led clearance operations of 2017. The film is being released on August 25, the anniversary of the onset of genocidal attacks in Myanmar that forced more than 700,000 Rohingya into Bangladesh." The film is available at the above web address.

On the Web: Project 1492 : https://project1492, describes itself, "For too long American history has been taught from just one perspective – the myopic view of the settler colonists – and so many of the facts of the country’s past have been conveniently swept under the rug. Project 1492 is intended to offer a different view of history while informing average Americans about many events that have been omitted from the mainstream narrative or forgotten entirely. History has consequences, and the impact of the choices made over the past 500 years have put an indelible stamp on this country that continues to impact the relationship between the descendants of European settlers and modern-day Native Americans.

The stories you’ll find here aren’t easy to read, but they are important. Most Americans have no idea what happened to American Indians in the past or what their lives are like today. Our goal is to share as many of those stories as we can.  We began with a dozen or so, but there are many more in the works that will be added to the Project 1492 website going forward. We want to hear from you, too. Please contribute your story ideas through the Contact page. Tell us what you’d like to see. Tell us what you think people need to know. Tell us what you think. We look forward to hearing from you."
