Description

 A Community Collaborations Screening

Presented by Iowa City Foreign Relations Council, Global Ties Iowa, and FilmScene, with financial support from the UI Center for Human Rights, Center for Asian and Pacific Studies, and the Religious Studies Department.

An Afghan refugee named Bibi Bahrami – and the members of her little Indiana mosque –  come face to face with a U.S. Marine who has secret plans to bomb their community center. But Mac McKinney's plan takes an unexpected turn. Directed by Joshua Seftel, the Oscar nominated Stranger at the Gate is a story of grace, transformation, and hope.
