Eight-year-old Kamil reminds us to see past the Specific Irrelevant Details in this powerful poem.
What started as a school assignment, to write a poem about discrimination, soon became a global collaboration between like-minded creatives and filmmakers across the world bringing the poem to life. Amongst that collaboration was Exile Key Films based in Kakuma refugee camp, Kenya, and run by refugee entrepreneurs, Amina and Abdul. Outstanding storytellers in their own right, Amina and Abdul’s collaboration was important when bringing this poem to life to ensure the images of refugees were crafted by refugees themselves.
“My hope is that discrimination will be erased and everyone will be treated fairly.” Kamil said. Find out more about the production of the film here.
