Presbyterian Disaster Assistance: What in the World are They Doing?


April 22, May 6, 13 & 27 | 10:45 am - Overflow Room

Elder Tom Hoffman will facilitate an adult education experience where we will engage in conversations about important and timely issues through several Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) award-winning documentaries.

  • April 22 -- Kepulihan: When the Waters Recede

    When we first met Pak Yadi in 2004 on the island of Sumatra he took us on a short walk to a makeshift gravesite where he had buried 15 family members after a series of tsunamis killed more than half the population of his community.  Over the next 10 years we traveled back to Indonesia to spend time with Yadi and record his thoughts, reflections and insights, as he searched, amidst the loss and devastation, to find a way forward. Kepulihan: When the Waters Recede is a short documentary that captures the 2004 Tsunami aftermath and recovery told entirely through the eyes and experiences of 1 survivor over a 10-year period, as he struggles to forge a new life and rebuild his community. Kepulihan was an official selection for the Beaufort International Film Festival and the Covellite International Film Festival, and received the DeRose Hinkhouse Award for Excellence.

  • May 6 — To Breath Free

    Short documentary and winner of "Best Documentary Short" at the Covellite International Film Festival 2017:  "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”   To Breathe Free follows the 5-year journey of a Syrian family fleeing the war in Homs to the refugee camps in Jordan and starting a new life in Washington, D.C. Using home movies, phone video, family photos and interviews with family members and former refugees, this short documentary gives an intimate and unique perspective not seen in current media reporting on the refugee crisis. To Breathe Free captures the intersection of individual narratives from a family fleeing the Vietnam War in 1970, to the Syrian Conflict in 2017, to the families who help create a new home in our nation's capital, giving voice to our common humanity and the struggle that binds people together.

  • May 13 — Locked in a Box

    This award winning short documentary follows the stories of individuals held in the U.S. Immigration detention system and those who visit them. The film traces the lives of individuals who fled their homelands in search of safety and freedom only to end up in U.S. prisons under a mandatory bed quota system run by Immigration Customs & Enforcement (ICE). Since the 1990’s there has been a massive expansion of the immigration detention system up to 34,000 immigrants in detention on any given day in approximately 200 different facilities, many of which are for-profit prisons. Locked in a Box helps strip away the political rhetoric to see the human cost of detention. Locked was an award winner for “Achievement in Documentary Film” from the Georgia Latino Film Alliance and Film Festival.  Presbyterian Disaster Assistance supports the development of visitation ministries, legal orientation programs, and community-based services to those who are released in partnership and collaboration with Lutheran Immigration & Refugee Service (LIRS). This film is the result of the collaboration between PDA and LIRS with local partners in the hope of inspiring its viewers toward action.

  • May 27 —  The Dayton Film Forum:

                          A Community Engagement Model

    This 12 minute video focuses on a film forum that was developed in Dayton Ohio using our films Locked in a Box and To Breathe Free.  "The Peace Literacy Dayton Film Forum: Breaking the Silence about Immigration" was a series of city-wide screenings with panels at local mosques, churches, the Dayton Opera, universities and colleges. These award-winning documentary resources are available to congregations and communities to organize screenings and host conversations about important and timely issues.
